I'm sorry but what exactly does the title say. I want to say that you are saying the house of representatives supports the quotes from the women in high government positions but I might be wrong

It would be nice as well if the debate was conducted in English.

Pro is new to the site.

The opening argument by Pro should give the reasons why the resolution should be affirmed. Also give definitions, in this case "high government office."

The resolution is contrary to democracy, so it seems tough to make a case for it.

Definitions of debate on the Web:

* argue with one another; "We debated the question of abortion"; "John debated Mary"
Debate
- * consider: think about carefully; weigh; "They considered the possibility of a strike"; "Turn the proposal over in your mind"
* discuss the pros and cons of an issue
* argument: a discussion in which reasons are advanced for and against some proposition or proposal; "the argument over foreign aid goes on and on"
* argue: have an argument about something
* the formal presentation of a stated proposition and the opposition to it (usually followed by a vote)

Notice how so many of the definitions involve MAKING AN ARGUMENT.
