We are delighted to announced that Meghan Murphy and Bec Wonders will be speaking at our next public meeting in Glasgow.  Tickets are available from Eventbrite.

forwomen.scot is a group of ordinary women from all over Scotland who have come together to protect and strengthen women’s and children’s rights.

The Scottish Government plans to amend the Gender Recognition Act to allow any man to self-declare himself to be a woman.  This would not require any medical treatment or surgery, or even any change in appearance.

Only 18 per cent of voters agree with these proposals.

We are concerned about the consequences of these proposals to our sex based legal rights and protections.  Many organisations are acting as though it is already law, bringing in policies that encourage men to enter women’s and girls’ spaces.  Examples include hospital wards, refuges, toilets, changing rooms, school and girl guide overnight accommodation, hostels, university rooms, and prisons.  Medical treatment and research, crime statistics, programmes for women in politics and STEM subjects, and women’s sports are also adversely affected.

We believe:

  • sex is immutable and is a protected characteristic;
  • women are entitled to privacy, dignity, safety and fairness;
  • women’s rights should be strengthened.

As our name suggests, we campaign on a positive, pro-women basis and we call for evidence based discussion and legislation.

Hi @DailyNousEditor I'm told you won't link to this article on your site because it contains 'mistakes' or 'intentionally misleading claims'. Care to explain in public instead of privately gatekeeping? Or even better, let readers make up their own minds? https://t.co/4efZ5sYMZS

@ndls61 @DrMoragKerr @Couthie_Lassie @gigiglasgow72 @WingsScotland I may be a trans ally but I’m also a feminist and both are of equal importance.
As we recognise, you don’t get equality by trampling over another group’s rights.

EXCLUSIVE: The trans group say they are “deeply concerned about naive proposals to weaken safeguarding protections in a misguided attempt to support a simplistic notion of inclusion”
