I care because I have a daughter and the thought that she may grow up in a world where she will enjoy less protections than I have, terrifies me.
I feel I would be letting her down if I don’t do something to stop this erosion of women’s rights.
I have never felt more passionate on any other issue than this.
I have spoken up on social media, both under my own name and a pseudonym. I have attended several women’s events and pledged money where needed/where I can. I have spoken to most of my real life friends and family to bring them up to speed on the situation. I have written to my MP several times and I think the next step will be seeing him in person.
One long standing friend called me a transphobe a few years ago and we haven’t spoken since. I’ll never forgive her I don’t think!
We have a non binary person in my team at work and I’m terrified of there being consequences at work if I’m too outspoken about this.
