The University of Essex turns on Stonewall – The Post

This week the University of Essex published an open apology to two female professors who it had no-platformed in December 2019 due to their gender-critical views. The university also published a full report replete with recommendations and future actions.

[T]he decision matters because it suggests that the way to ‘cancel’ cancel culture is not through more legislation — as the government is currently proposing — but through precedent. It may have taken eighteen months, but the University of Essex’s decision is a victory for common sense and will hopefully embolden academic leaders to value diversity of thought without the need for blunt statutory tools.
