Gender discrimination has been a fixture in our history from suffrage through to equal pay and other rights under the law. Historically equality movements like feminism have had a hugely important role in achieving equality but many people believe modern third wave feminism focuses on gender exceptionalism rather than egalitarianism. Additionally policies typically suggested by modern feminism aim to use government force to correct the remaining problems they perceive within society.

This panel examines the role feminism currently has in society and asks if it is necessary to support egalitarian objectives or if it has just become another adjunct for statists to advance their goals.
