when we should be speaking
Release Date: 01/09/2011
A conversation between Karl and Rebecca Meredith who (in partnership with Marlena Valles) took part in a debating competition in which she was verbally abused with a series of sexist and misogynistic comments from a group of young men from Glasgow University Union. This ugly and unprovoked attack was made even more grotesque by the media coverage that followed in its wake. The Daily Mail headline screeched Cambridge Debating Stars Left In Tears By Barrage. At Karl's invitation, Rebecca gives her version of what at times feels like an almost unbelievable series of events in an unedited, frank and open conversation.
