Speaker information

Sir Stephen Wall, Chair of UCL Council, UCL

The suffragettes won the vote and closed up shop. The French and Americans won their revolutions and turned their swords into ploughshares and Pontiacs. The LGBT movement has won (almost) equal civil rights in Britain. What's still to be afraid of? Is our fear bigger than their hate? Why have such big changes left issues unresolved? Do our fears have to be faced afresh in each generation?

Don't expect a learned lecture. This will be personal, non-academic and probably as dated as the speaker. More questions than answers, but a few of those too: a couple from me and the rest from the rest of you.
