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.
