On the day it's officially announced that there's an “epidemic” re violence against women & girls (There are 1.6 million victims of domestic abuse & crimes like stalking, voyeurism & online abuse where eight out of 10 victims are women or girls), @UKLabour deputy leader.. 1/
.@AngelaRayner (in the absence of a yet to be appointed Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities) opts to ignore this damning report but instead focuses on spurious, un-evidenced reporting of a journalist who has been found wanting re his reporting 2/
@AngelaRayner launches into evidence free hyperbole about the abuse & discrimination of the trans community. No such public support against the much evidenced abuse & discrimination LP women members endure, including Chair of Women’s PLP, Rosie Duffield.3/…

@RLong_Bailey @Keir_Starmer @lisanandy @EmilyThornberry Labour Women's Declaration wrote to each of you at the launch of your leadership campaigns asking whether you were committed to upholding the Labour 2019 Manifesto pledge on sex based rights #ExpelMe #WomensVoicesMatter
Labour Women's Declaration also asked how each of you, as leader, would ensure women in the party were able to meet, organise & discuss matters of policy change & how any such changes might impact women' sex based rights, without fear of threat/intimidation #SexMatters #ExpelMe
Labour Women's Declaration notes that to date we have not heard back from any of you with regards to our questions on women's sex based rights. We do note that @RLong_Bailey & @lisanandy have been quick to act in signing up to Labour Campaign for Trans Rights. #WomensRightsMatter

I just woke up from the worst dream

This witch was making a speech where she said all victims of assault who petition Congress r paid actors & lib interest groups
She berated them for daring to question a spoiled white boy’s right to get whatever he wanted after he had a tantrum
Then millions of trolls went online to demand we all prove that we’ve been assaulted
They gaslighted us over how memory works & about who the real victims are

They demanded evidence but our own eyewitness testimony & years of pain didn’t count

All while shouting about values
They bought into wild conspiracy theories about why we came forward while demanding that anything we said had to be proven w/ corroborating contemporaneous evidence. Something they didn’t seem to need to believe the conspiracies

And as we cried, they mocked us and laughed at us
