Opponents of equal marriage often make a case against equal marriage using scientific research that allegedly supports ‘traditional’ marriage. Meanwhile, its defenders rely on “inevitability” and a claim to rights rarely matched with responsibilities. A lack of genuine intellectual enquiry has led to a stalemate.

So does the “evidence” stack up? And is it responsible to give way to inevitability without defining the obligations which accompany the rights demanded?

About our speakers

Helen Dale has degrees from Oxford, UQ and Edinburgh and now works in commercial law at a private practice in Edinburgh, where she has a particular interest in start-up finance, angel investing and entrepreneurship. She won the Law Society of Scotland’s annual essay award in 2012 for her paper ‘A Plea in Law for Equal Marriage’ and she writes regularly for The Skeptic. About 20 years ago she wrote the novel ‘The Hand That Signed The Paper’ under the pseudonym Helen Demidenko. The book won the Miles Franklin Award (among others), and went on to cause significant controversy.

Tim Wilson is Freedom Commissioner at the Human Rights Commission. Former roles include Director of Climate Change Policy and the Intellectual Property and Free Trade Unit at the Institute of Public Affairs and Senior Fellow at New York’s Center for Medicine in the Public Interest. Tim has studied global public health policy and diplomacy in a joint program of Geneva’s Institut de Hautes Études Internationales et du Développment and the World Health Organisation and participated in The Australian newspaper’s Shaping Our Future: Ideas to Change a Century series on reforming healthcare financing.
