In an attempt to curtail an event bringing women together to speak freely about issues affecting their lives, a Big Tech ticketing service is blocking the organizers from promoting the gathering.

The group Standing for Women holds public forums to talk with women who have become politically homeless due to the left’s support for ideology and legislation that harms women and their civil rights.

The group hosts an event called “Let Women Speak” to allow women to gather publicly and speak about protecting their sex-based rights to privacy, consent, safety, fairness, and female-only spaces. Additionally, the group covers issues such as transgenderism and their impact on women and girls in the country. 

When a similar event was held at the Austin Central Library in 2022, protestors banged on the windows and screamed expletives while participants attempted to speak on the impact of gender ideology on women and their rights. 

Michelle Evans, the political director for Texans for Vaccine Choice, is coordinating “Let Women Speak” in Austin, Texas, so women can speak publicly about how they are being canceled, fired, de-platformed, harassed, and assaulted for speaking up about transgender ideology and its adverse effects. 

However, Eventbrite, a popular ticketing service, removed the event from its site, saying it violated its community guidelines and terms of service. Specifically, the email sent to Evans said the event violated its policy on hateful, dangerous, or violent content and events. 

Evans told Texas Scorecard that although left-wing companies, like Eventbrite, are trying to shut down the event, it will continue as planned. 

“Like so many corporations, Eventbrite is capitulating to a movement that elevates the desires and feelings of male fetishists over the rights of women. This event will continue as planned; women will not be silenced by this unhinged minority.”

Eventbrite has been known to remove posts for events that challenge radical leftist ideology, even though the company boasts that it allows “anyone to create, share, find and attend events that fuel their passions.”

Most notably, the ticketing service removed a post from influential conservative commentator Matt Walsh, who promoted his “What Is a Woman?” documentary on the site. In an email sent to Walsh, Eventbrite stated, “We do not permit events, content, or creators that promote or encourage hate, violence, or harassment towards others.”

Eventbrite has not yet responded to a request for comment.
