A Woman’s Place is Making Change
Woman’s Place UK is a recently formed campaign to ensure women’s voices are heard and our right to single-sex spaces upheld, in relation to proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act. It is built upon the seasoned experience of women activists from trade unions and women’s services. As described on Mumsnet, Woman’s Place UK are ‘Savvy, assertive, unfailingly courteous but take no shit’. This talk covers how our campaign demands, keeping women’s rights at the centre, help focus our work; the importance of consistency, creativity and stamina; relating to a wider evolving grassroots movement; lobbying and public meetings; the immense challenges of campaigning in the face of threats and intimidation.
Without precedent: virtue-signaling away women's rights
This talk will discuss the cultural impact of gender identity laws, and the effect of the cultural and political climate on the way that law is interpreted and implemented.
