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!

 

 

 

Defending abusers helps no-one

Alan Carr doubtless feels he’s being loyal to old friend Justin Lee Collins, who was convicted of domestic abuse. Very often the abuser, the person using violence or emotional abuse to batter their partner, uses friends as part of his armoury. They provide a convenient smokescreen behind which to hide the abuser’s true nature. Women’s Aid reports 2 women a week are murdered by their partners in the UK. Police receive a domestic abuse call every 30 seconds.

Beautiful video ‘We are WOMAN’ (#weareWOMAN)

Beautiful short film. She will be born female, she will have a girlhood. She can be tough. She can escape stereotypes. She can be comfortable in her own skin. She can break the mould! She can be wise, she can be fast, she can celebrate her body. She can be the best. She can be the leader in her field. She has strength in unity. Her voice is powerful. She will rise up. Our time is coming, are you ready? Don’t erase us. We are women. #weareWOMAN

Mermaid’s lies and the trans youth suicide myth

Created by parents struggling to help their gender-questioning children, Mermaids Transgender was a support group. Now it’s a registered charity, receiving large grants and consulted by the UK Government, the NHS and others. And is still a group of blinkered evangelists. Despite their elevated status, Mermaids have shown themselves incapable of handling facts or seeing wider contexts. Our distressed young people need support, not sterilisation. We explain.

Class analysis: Women as a class are oppressed by men as a class

Class analysis means looking at what generally happens with people who share a unique set of features. This sometimes confuses people. As a feminist, I might say “men oppress women”, then half a dozen people come along to tell me they know men who’ve never oppressed a female – otherwise known as NAMALT for not all men are like that. It completely misses the point of the analysis.

‘Feminist Men’ throwing women under a bus

Re-posted from Smashing Gender Change by the admirable Hope “Street Voice” Lye: The ‘Not Guilty’ verdict for Ched Evans in his recent re-trial for rape has left many women angry and rightfully so. This has sent rape trials back 30 years where the defence can use any means to attack the victim

Gender – the new youth tribe?

Gender identity is the new black. No other recent movement has spiralled as quickly as that which questions ideas around gender and to the confusion of parents, more and more young people are ‘coming out’ as Gender Fluid, Genderqueer, or any one of the numerous new trans identities. Of course, questioning gender is no bad

Gender Identity and how normal rules don’t seem to apply!

On my facebook feed the other night I saw a friend reporting that his two-year-old twins want to be an owl and a sheep respectively. Cue lols and hearts. I clicked on his page; they’d all just been on a half-term trip to a farm. There they were, beaming, with
