This matters to me because as a grandmother I want the future of my my granddaughters in particular to include full participation in public life. The onslaught on the rights of women and children will limit that participation by making single sex facilities unsafe by allowing males free access. They will also be limited by the removal of women only shortlists and the right to single sex sports.
I have spoken to as many people as I can in my daily life and written to my MP and several retail outlets pointing out the dangers of self idenitfication and the removal of single sex provisions.
I have been dismissed as having a bee in my bonnet which detracts from the overall respect I am shown.
