We are, of course, hugely disappointed in today’s ruling, which is available in full on the court’s website here.
At first reading this seems disastrous for women who are seemingly now no longer recognised in law as a sex-class, with distinct requirements of our own. We are obviously still analysing the decision and will consider if any further legal action is appropriate in due course.
There are clear ramifications for the Gender Recognition Reform Bill currently before Parliament and we hope some time will be allowed for MSPs to digest the ruling and its consequences. It is now beyond doubt that the Bill is not a “simple administration change” but does have a wider impact on society.
Many thanks to all those who donated and supported us this far, we will all keep fighting!
