For Women Scotland

For Women Scotland

Group of women in Scotland who oppose the proposed changes to the GRA and wish to defend/strengthen Equality Act sex protections.

For Women Scotland is a grassroots women's group founded in June 2018 amid growing unease about how women's rights would be affected by the Scottish Government's plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act to allow for self-declaration of sex.

For Women Scotland says that proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act 2004 to allow people as young as 16 to change their legal gender through self-identification would erode women's rights and would violate the Equality Act 2010.

The group has been involved in a number of legal challenges to the Scottish Government's plans, including a judicial review of the statutory guidance for the Gender Representation on Public Boards Act.

For Women Scotland is a registered charity and is funded by individual donations and membership fees.

The group has a board of directors that is composed of women from all over Scotland.

For Women Scotland's aims are to:

  • Campaign on equality and human rights issues impacting on women and children in Scotland.
  • Promote evidence-based discussion about sex and gender.
  • Challenge the Scottish Government's plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act.

The group has a number of supporters, including Baroness Falkner of Margravine, who is a former Minister of State for Women and Equalities. They have been criticized for simply using accurate language to describe the biological reality of sex.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
