The Women's Resource Centre @whywomen standing up for single sex services!
👏👏👏 @VivHayes @suerob1960
Report highlights the importance of the single sex "exemptions" in the Equality Act 2010, for women's services

(I think they are "exceptions" legal tweeps? )
"clear definitions of ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ required
to reduce confusion and conflict caused by conflation of the two terms..conversation, discussion and debate required, without closing down speech around single-sex provision" Clear guidance needed @EHRC @fawcettsociety
Argues for "third space" ‘led by-and-for,’ to accommodate members of the male sex who identify as women/girls and
meet their needs under the protected characteristic of gender-reassignment, whilst protecting the sex-based rights of women and girls as a sex-class.
NB: the single sex exceptions in the Equality Act don't just apply to women's refuges & other specialist women's services, they also underpin everyday single sex spaces, sports, women's and girls charities and associations etc.

Clear guidance is needed! fairplayforwomen.com/single-sex/
