Felicity’s team successfully won the proposed motion at the Oxford Union debate on Thursday 13th November: “This House Believes that suspects accused of sexual violence have no right to anonymity”.

The evening dealt sensitively with this controversial topic and saw lively debate from Felicity Gerry QC, students Patrick Bateman and Richard Ngo, high profile solicitors Paul Tweed and Nicola O’Connor and Campaign Manager of End Violence Against Women Sarah Green. It was also an historic evening as the Union decisively voted to change its rules to allow for open electioneering.

The evening was preceded with a panel discussion on whether the justice system is failing victims of sexual violence with panellists Felicity Gerry QC, Lisa Longstaff of Women Against Rape and campaigner Jill Saward.
