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.

URGENT: SUPPORT US AND PLEASE DONATE TO OUR FIGHTING FUND

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!

 

 

 

Questions for left-wing people who support self-definition as a woman

  It appears that the Labour Party in the UK have unofficially and undemocratically decided, without consulting party members or having any sort of vote, that anyone can self-define as a woman (note: not as men) and therefore apply for all-women shortlists, at least in under-25 categories so far –

The Gender Recognition Act 2004 : What does it mean for women?

Introduction The Gender Recognition Act 2004 is the legal framework by which a transgender person can have their preferred gender legally recognised.

#MeToo

What is the experience of growing up as a female in a sexist society and why does it matter? Like it or not, the experience of physical violence and sexual abuse IS very different between males and females. Males are overwhelmingly the perpetrators. It’s a fact. Not every male, but

A letter to the woman who called me a TERF

We found this amazing letter on Mumsnet and approached the author for permission to share. It is powerful and needs to be heard. To the woman who shrieked at me that I am a bigot and a terf and a hateful transphobe for defending women’s rights, Ten, fifteen years from

Dear Labour Party: Please consult ordinary women

Several Labour Party women have written that they welcome male applicants into female leadership programmes, if they identify as women. We feel that organisations are deaf to the majority concerns of women. Should much-needed opportunities for females be offered instead to males? Fair Play Women ask the Labour Party to reconsider. Read our letter here.

Miscarriages in pub toilets. Is gender neutral ready?

A quarter of pregnancies miscarry, and most miscarriages happen in public toilets. We wouldn’t need those safer spaces if the world outside the Ladies’ was fully accepting of women’s right to privacy & dignity, of our desire not to be stalked and groped, of our naturally unpolished looks and our hormonally-active bodies. But it isn’t. If we’re to be forced into sharing with males, they’re going to have to wise up and shut up.

Are transgender prison suicides being used as a weapon to promote a political agenda?

In the UK, and in other countries, there are organisations promoting and lobbying for transgender people and their rhetoric is becoming synonymous with claims of suicide. We hear that transgender people are very likely to attempt suicide during their lifetime, though the studies do not make clear whether these attempts
