One woman was listed on the original event line-up, panel host Uzma al-Karim, however social media users remarked that her name was not featured prominently on the event literature. The Arts Council of Pakistan tried to defend the initial panel by saying the male decision-makers on the original panel were invited to share views on feminism. One of the male panelists, Jibran Nasir, admitted that the title was 'misleading' and that he had requested that the organisers changed it. Some Pakistani social media users condemned the Arts Council of Pakistan for trying to host an all-male panel on feminism calling it 'the only perspective we've been listening to'.
Nasir said that the panel was about 'men talking to other men about rethinking masculinity and why as men we need feminism.

But on other issues, real debates are not only possible but ongoing and spiralling outward, challenging us to reconcile our beliefs with our sympathies, our partisan allegiances with our principles—to make our philosophies one with our politics. One such debate is roiling my home country of Canada right now. The peculiarity of Canadian politics is that two center-left parties compete with each other, as well as with the governing Conservatives. The social-democratic N. Trudeau, Sr.
