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.

For that longitudinal study you have showing that trans women show the same pattern violence as females.

Dear @LibDems it looks like anti-women activists have found the log in codes to your youth account and are trying to ruin your election changes by being aggressively misogynistic & abusive.

@YoungLiberalsUK Well lads, you’ve just lost this Jew’s vote. I can’t vote Lib Dem if you think woman is something you identify as rather than a biological reality. Ask the little girls sleeping in a freezing cow shed one week a month whether it’s an identity. Your western privilege is showing.

On the very day that a High Court judge tells a court that TERF is a derogatory term used to shut women down https://twitter.com/YoungLiberalsUK/status/1197566076877463553
