Consult with women on proposals to enshrine 'gender identity' in law

The government proposes to amend the law to allow people to self-identify as men or women, and to stop allowing organisations in sensitive situations to exclude people of the opposite birth sex. We call for women to be consulted on how to protect women and girls' rights, safety, privacy and dignity.

More details
We call for:
-   Respectful and evidence-based discussion about the impact of proposed changes and for women's voices to be heard.

-   The government to consult with women’s organisations on how self-declaration would impact on women-only services and spaces, data-gathering, and monitoring of sex-based discrimination.

- The principle of single-sex spaces to be upheld – and where necessary extended.

Signed and shared my friend. There is too much erasure of women and lesbians going on. This silencing, demonising and discounting of women has to be fought now not politely acquiesced to.
