NB. Region refers to your constituency region; if you’re unsure, enter your postcode here.

Contact MSPs

Our experience shows that meeting face-to-face is more successful than writing long letters.  So our advice is to send a quick email saying you would like to arrange a meeting to discuss the proposed changes to the GRA because of concerns regarding the protection of women’s and girls’ spaces/girlguides/policies in schools, etc. (whatever concerns you the most).

We all have one constituency MSP and seven regional MSPs.  Put your postcode into theyworkforyou.com/scotland to find yours.  It’s a lot of work but it is worth contacting ALL of them – after all, they each get a vote on this at Parliament.

We would love to hear about your MSPs response.

We produced these briefing notes which may be useful to email or discuss with your MSPs:

Contact your MP

We started a campaign on International Women’s Day to ask MPs to write to Penny Mordaunt, Minister for Women, to request guidance to be published on the use of the single-sex exceptions in the Equality Act.  This is an ongoing campaign, please see forwomen.scot/take-part/iwd for an easy how to guide.

Contact Your Local School

Find out what is being taught to your children.  We have concerns with much of the guidance given to schools by transgender organisations and lobby groups.  Transgendertrend are an excellent resource and have a free pack which you can send to your school.
