The Women's Organisation Join Oxford Union Debate to Oppose the View 'Women Running Subsistence Businesses are not Entrepreneurs'

Next Monday and Tuesday The Women's Organisation will be furiously debating the topic 'Women Running Subsistence Businesses are not Entrepreneurs'.  CEO of The Women's Organisation Maggie O'Carroll will be joining the 'Opposition' team at the Oxford Union debate.


TAKING SIDES: OXFORD UNION DEBATE (OXFORD UNION DEBATING CHAMBER)
A classic Oxford experience is the Union debate. Two expert and passionate teams will battle it out on the question:

THIS HOUSE BELIEVES THAT WOMEN RUNNING SUBSISTENCE BUSINESSES ARE NOT ENTREPRENEURS

Audience members will have the chance to offer their own arguments between speaker four and speaker five. At the end, the audience will vote ‘aye’ or ‘no’, as decades of Oxonians have, by proceeding to the bar through one or the other door to the chamber.
