A taste of what you get-- the script
Before I hand the floor back to the opposition, I’d like to point out that there are three issues our opponents have failed to dispute, namely, in education, the notable absence of women in tenure and management positions despite girls outperforming boys in entering college; in politics, the unreasonable and gender-specific criticism targeted at female politicians based on stereotypes; and in the labour force, the oppressive treatment women had to bear including being less likely to be promoted and more likely to be harassed. Our opponents today painted a picture in which men and women are treated equally and I wonder whether that’s the case? Praise for women rings hallow if when discrimination is pervasive. Does our opponent happen to understand the true scale and severity of gender discrimination in Hong Kong? Without a doubt, Hong Kong is not a gender-fair society.
A taste of what you get-- the comments
o The tone is appropriate for a debate—there are instances of fierce attack done tactfully, with force, and reasonably, which shows a high degree of control in terms of the use of tone, e.g. ‘Our opponents today painted a picture in which men and women are treated equally and I wonder whether that’s the case? Praise for women rings hallow if when discrimination is pervasive.’
o Follows the genre conventions of a debate, including the use of genre-specific phrases like ‘Before I hand the floor back to the opposition,’ ‘Yes, I agree up to a point’ and ‘In my following speech, I will dispute the affirmative side’s claim and argue that’
o The way that is evidence is used communicates a sense of rationality and reason. Particularly impressive instances include the use of official statistics to prove the glass ceiling women face in politics and higher education. The examples of #MeToo and workplace harassment are well-interpreted.
Vocab and grammar
o Good use of a great variety of sophisticated vocabulary items correctly collocated, e.g. ‘a mere exception’, ‘persistent phenomenon’, ’albeit’, ‘disparaged’ and ‘university ranking which favrg’ours quantitative research over qualitative ones’
o Good use of a great variety of sophisticated grammatical patterns, e.g. ‘politics, where women are’ (relative clause), ‘that Carrie Lam did break the glass ceiling’ (noun clause and empathetic ‘do’), ‘Does Carrie Lam show that Hong Kong is gender-fair? On the contrary!’ (rhetorical question)
Organization and coherence
o Each paragraph deals with a distinct aspect of the issue with little overlapping of ideas.
o The summary restates the main ideas forcefully and succinctly and adds a final attack to the opponent
