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.

Magdalen Berns is the woman who gave me the courage to stop being politely silent, and start being a loud and proud T.E.R.F. Women are adult human females, we're not just a feeling inside a man's head.

My real name is Jenny Del Toro, I'm not hiding anymore, come at me bro.

This man works for @stonewalluk. He's gloating about the destruction of women's sport. Is he also salivating at the prospect of women being seriously injured or killed in this contact sport?

This is a misogynistic campaign to harm women & deprive us of our human rights.

Thank you for all who offered to make donations for @MagdalenBerns

Marion has discussed it with her and it's best if donations can be made to Magdalen's Patreon or PayPal - she can then determine how she wants to use it.

Can @LGBTIScotland and @ScottishTrans explain why their board member Mat Wilkie is liking tweets referring to stickers about homosexuality at @glasgowpride as being transphobic and problematic?
For an org supposedly representing LG this is shocking!
