Welcome to Fair Play For Women

Fair Play for Women is an apolitical group of ordinary people from all walks of life who have come together to fight for womens and girls rights. Run entirely by a team of volunteers with skills in many different disciplines, we have worked hard over the past year to bring this issue to public attention. 

We 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 ask for rational, evidence-led debate before any legal changes are made that affect our existing legal sex based rights. We are a reliable and authoritative information source on all the key topics in the debate.


Fair Play for Women is appealing for help to create a fighting-fund so that we can launch a major information campaign to stop self-identification of sex (‘sex self-ID’) becoming law before it’s too late.

We have an exciting programme of films, legal explainers, information packs and workshops planned, with the generous help of a fantastic team of filmmakers, graphic designers, publicists and lawyers. We now need funds to produce top-quality materials and get the campaign up and running.

The proponents of sex self-ID have huge budgets and major institutional supporters on their side; we have a brilliant team of volunteers and a phenomenal reserve of goodwill on ours. We now need your help in raising up to £20,000 to pay for these materials. The public must know the whole story. Everyone must know what is at stake. Women in particular deserve to be informed about the implications of sex self-ID.  Our campaign will make that happen.

Thank you for joining the struggle to protect female sex-based rights. Help us get the message out there, for the sake of our daughters, our mothers, our sisters, our partners and ourselves!
