Nevis successfully opposed the moot: “The feminist movement has become focused on attacking men rather than promoting the equality of women.”

They advanced to the finals after defeating Montserrat in debate one and St. Maarten in debate three to compete in the finals against the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College’s Literary and Debating Society in St. Kitts.

Ms. Mikaela Maynard of the Nevis Sixth Form College received the Best Speaker award for the finals and second speaker went to Mr. Jeran Webb also of the Nevis Sixth Form College while Best Speaker overall went to Ms. Mya Lake of the Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive School’s Literary and Debating Society in Anguilla.
