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.

Not a big deal... Except when you tell children that wearing a skirt means you are no longer a real boy, or tell children sexist, regressive views are hard-wired into biology and they have to take powerful drugs to "correct" their body.

Gosh, where do we find the anarchist rule book? Approved texts, time and place they can be distributed - do they have enforced bedtime too?

Thing is @joswinson you say no one needs to show birth certificates to access toilets. But no man checks birth certificates before he rapes a woman, sells her as a sex slave, murders her after birth, forces her into marriage, or beats his baby out of her belly. SHAME on you.
