We are off! @Julian_Norman1 is beginning by talking about absolute and qualified human rights. #WPUKReading
HrA - only 3 are absolute, the rest are qualified. Article 4 allows a community service order for example. #WPUKReading
Julian is focusing on article 8 - private & family life. What it gives with one hand it takes with another. A proportionate means to achieving a legitimate aim. #WPUKReading
This was tested in terms of gender identity in 2004 at the EU court, the ruling applied to post-operative transsexuals in terms of the proportionate aims egal balancing act #WPUKReading
There are no cases to her knowledge which address the legal balance between gender with grc and gender identity (self id of sex) #WPUKReading
Gender identity goes well beyond gender reassignment. How do we legislate for self-perception? #WPUKReading
How can one have an innate sense of what is culturally determined? Is our oppression as women really natural and innate? #WPUKReading
We need, maybe, to legally deal with the competing ideas of innate gender and women's liberation (radical feminisn) with article 9 #WPUKReading
Disbelief in women's 'natural' oppression and inferior status in a sex hierarchy (radical feminism) would also be protected #WPUKReading
Case law is very limited however the Green case and hon Richardson's judgements provide some guidance, a female prisoner is not a comparator #WPUKReading
HYLW in 2017 held the GRC as a red line. Amending the GRA would widen the GRC to rendering it useless. It would also remove women's article 8 #WPUKReading
Women from faith groups will be excluded and loose their human rights. #WPUKReading
@GoonerProf is next up. There are so many legal issues to discuss. Rosa will focus on international human rights law framework #WPUKReading
We are seeing the use of human rights discours to undermine women's human rights #WPUKReading
International human rights law sprang from the ashes of Nazi Germany. What the Nazis did to their own citizens was heinous but not unlawful. As a world we said never again in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights #WPUKReading
The discussion was: should we look at individual characteristics such as disabilities or should it consider rights as humans #WPUKReading
It soon became clear that women were being discriminated against based on their sex. The universal declaration did not stop this. CEDAW was the answer #WPUKReading
The fight for women to have specific protections laid the way for other groups. #WPUKReading
In international human rights law women is always defined as a sex class. Corbett vs Corbett (April Ashley case) established how to define sex. Sex is about biology. #WPUKReading
Gender is defined in International human rights law as a cultural construct. It is the means women are oppressed #WPUKReading
The protesters have arrived!
Gender identity and sex are two separate things- in law and reality, both should be protected but as different things. #WPUKReading
These are our friends, I got this sent to me earlier today
Gender identity needs to be defined and clarified for legal protections; it is currently too broad. We can't protect those who we cannot define #WPUKReading
6 EU countries required forced sterilisation for transgender people to receive medical care, this is and was abhorrent. The u.k. did not. #WPUKReading
Self id is not fine elsewhere- it is different. We cannot argue cross-context. We need legal clarity, clarity of terms. #WPUKReading
Questions: the point at which people start sticking human rights lawyers is usually the indication of a totalitarian ideology #WPUKReading
@ruthserwotka is now outlining @Womans_Place_UK 's new/ extended demands a year on from the women's movement reigniting. #WPUKReading
The CPS consultation is significant, we need to get women mobilized and filling it in #WPUKReading
We also must protect women and feminist voices from being accused of hate speech #WPUKReading
*attacking not sticking
Women's movements have never achieved anything without a fight. For millennia we have been silenced. No more #WPUKReading
Questions: hyper gendred societies attack people from deviating from these norms. #WPUKReading
Questions: we have to fight for the right to not just keep but celebrate same sex attraction #WPUKReading
Lesbians have the right to say who they are and are not sexually attracted to. @BBCWomensHour #WPUKReading
Under article 11 the state has a positive obligation to allow and enable lesbians (female homosexuals) to meet and assemble as a separate group #WPUKReading
Dave from #WomanWednesday is in the audience #WPUKReading
We have to do something about the Labour Party. We have to raise he'll over this #Labour #WPUKReading
I have been housed by such kind extended relatives that every time I go down stairs I get a 'sleep' gift, I currently have four blankets piled atop my duvet.
