This is taking it a little too far:
Woman’s Place UK organised the book launch. Judith Green, the campaign group’s co-founder, told The Telegraph: “It is outrageous and grimly ironic that two of this country’s pre-eminent feminist campaigners against male violence against women should be the subject of cancellation on an entirely bogus pretext.”
The event, scheduled for Nov 24, will be hosted by author Julie Bindel, who will interview Smith about her book, which warns about the continued threat of violence against women and the need for single-sex environments.
But on Wednesday evening, ticket holders were suddenly refunded their tickets, all trace of the launch was removed from the Eventbrite website, and organisers were informed by Eventbrite’s trust and safety team that the event violated policies on “hateful, dangerous, or violent content”.
