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.

We have now heard from so many people that we think almost half of Conservative MPs have, or will be, contacted. We would like to make that ALL of them, so DM us if you want to help, or pass on our email to a friend in another constituency. https://twitter.com/CUPWomensPledge/status/1214157442164150272

An account of sad state of academic discourse on sex & gender @EdinburghUni. We have asked a series of important questions. We hope that they will answer.

Academic freedom is under threat as never before: shamefully, the threat comes from within.


“For those of you not fortunate enough to be around for the activism of the ‘70s and ‘80s, this is what LGB solidarity looks like.” I wrote about the @AllianceLGB launch for @afterellen. #LGBAllianceScotland https://www.afterellen.com/general-news/575162-lgb-alliance-launch-in-scotland

We done, yet another man celebrating a young woman being thrown onto the streets late at night in sub zero temperatures without her belongings.
