I have been in the struggle for women’s rights for more than 40 years. Gender ideology undoes the limited gains we have made and erases the possibilities of winning more. Gender ideology drips with misogyny and lesbophobia and homophobia. It is an authoritarian and regressive ideology.
I organise an annual International Women’s Day rally that is unashamedly feminist and of course recognises that women are adult human females. I have organised a small feminist discussion group to consider the harmful consequences of gender ideology.
I have organised one public meeting in defence of women’s sex-based rights and plan to run more once Covid restrictions permit. I organised a WL Conference in my home city a few months ago. I run several feminist FB pages and contribute to others.
I have been physically and verbally harassed, dropped from’progressive’ email lists, hounded out of my union, socially ostracised and had friends cut off all contact with me to show their left friends how woke they are.
