This matters to me as I feel that women’s rights are being attacked and set back decades. Woman have our own services for our privacy, dignity and safety and I worry that these are being threatened with removal. I care because I fear that woman will be driven from public life, our health and well-being will be affected. I know that predatory men will take full advantage of easy access into women’s safe spaces and assaults will increase.
I have raised my voice on Twitter albeit with an anonymous account. I have shared articles and supported others who speak out with positive comments and thanks. I have questioned companies and organisations about their use of dehumanising language eg menstruators, womxn. I have submitted responses to the UK and Scottish GRA proposals.
I have had some negative comments from strangers on Twitter.
