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 @theAliceRoberts, Claire Graham has responded and I hope you’ll take the time to engage with her. I think that a more direct one on one would be helpful https://t.co/vQeog2uZm7

Lynne is a brave and principled woman and was one of the first to speak up. I'm sure she'd appreciate support from any of our SNP followers!

@ForwomenScot @JBalfourMSP @S_A_Somerville @JohannLamont As she knows so much about Denmark & self ID, I’m sure she’s aware that Danish transsexuals has spoken out against the ease of Self ID. It followed the legal change made by Ibi Pippi & his consequent lawsuits


Lovely tribute to #magdalenberns here on Boxing Scotland's FB page. It isn't just the feminist community that is bereft.


Even my Grandma Pat & Aunty Hazel are non-binary & don’t you dare go disrespecting their identities - and glad to help! https://t.co/cZdySbqvvA
