You’d like to attend the Web Summit, Lisbon, 6-9 November? Great! Ticket price for those with vaginas, 85 Euros – for those with penises, 850 Euros.

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in May 2017:

Hey Mike,

Thought I’d share my disappointment with you. I follow your work closely and am a big supporter!

I just graduated University last year with 27k in debt. I believe networking and attending conferences is a great way for young graduates to get out into the market and advance one’s career. I was looking at the Web Summit event which is held in Lisbon this year, which has a ticket price of 850 Euros, or 85 Euros if you happen to be a woman – here. Last year they let women in for free, but most of the ones who claimed a free ticket didn’t go, so this year they’re giving them a 90% discount.

How is this in any way fair? I fail to see any logic in this differential pricing…

Thanks for your work.

All the best,
Ken

Maybe the men wishing to attend the event should claim they self-indentify as women?
