Contributions from the floor are now over. We will try to respond to some points raised but some we will need to go away and think about. Our arguments do win so for those who are still struggling to make their voice heard, we need to create a climate where people feel they can

In answer to the question about the source of this: this is the dominant ideology and it exists to break us up to bring division to women and to prevent us coming together to fight for our rights.

A woman is talking about stonewall approved employers. She worked at the Wellcome Trust. They received an email encouraging completion of the GRA consultation. They suggested using the words terf and transphobe. She put in a complaint and was accused of being aggressive.

A woman is talking about the pressure stonewall is putting on employers including investment banks. These places are keen to be badged by stonewall for trans inclusiveness but they are very sexist and this is being whitewashed.

A woman is talking about our 5th resolution. The government has recently called for submissions around sex and gender and mermaids and gires are encouraging submissions. We should make our own submission.

A woman is talking about the woman in America who was in a coma and who was raped. Women aren’t safe even in these situations where they should be safe.

A woman is asking the panel about our plans this year - we need a big debate. We have lots of discussions, for example on woman’s hour and the the trans rights activists don’t have great arguments. We need a big public debate with the best minds taking part.

Now listening to contributions from the floor. A teacher is speaking about how people are using inadequacies in sex and relationship education (sre) in her school to push the trans agenda - they are pushing for a gender free sex and relationship education.

Changing this category will have implications for the ability to collect consistent data as they have done for decades. Changing the parameters of a data base will change the validity of the data set.

Scotland recently had a public consultation on changing the sex question on the census. They proposed adding a 3rd option to the sex category. WPUK responded to this. It is important that the census continues to collect data on sex as a protected characteristic.

Data collected around violence and sexual violence against women. We need the facts and the data in order to campaign, to provide services, to fight the problem.

One example is the gender pay gap. We need this to measure people who have always lived as women, who experience sexism through their lives. It should be factual and accurate. It is in fact a “sex pay gap”.
