Welcome to Fair Play For Women

We are a group of ordinary women who are concerned that in the rush to reform transgender laws that women’s voices will not be listened to.

Women get called transphobic for simply asking questions. Women are afraid to speak out and fear for their jobs and reputation if they do. 

We are the voice of these women. 

In a debate that is often clouded by emotion we aim to bring clarity and to enable a rational, evidence-led debate to be had. We are a reliable and authoritative information source on all the key topics in the debate. We are also the platform for women to speak from and we regularly publish new articles written by our supporters.
