The treatment of Rosie Duffield MP is deplorable. We applaud her courage in speaking out. @UKLabour says it wants more light and less heat but its actions don’t support this claim. This is a thread of some of our attempts to get Labour to listen this year.
In February 2020, we published this post about the failure of @UKLabour to respond to our formal complaint about behaviour by Labour Party members at our unofficial fringe in Brighton. Six months later we have had no response…
This is the letter one of our co-founders @ruthserwotka wrote to Lisa Nandy when she made false and damaging allegations about us on the Radio 4 Today programme. We have had no response.…

Our experience around the GRA consultation made us realise the precarity of women's rights in the UK. That's why, in January 2019, we made the decision to expand our campaign beyond our original 5 demands. We made some New Year Resolutions…
These were our 5 New Year Resolutions:
1. Women have the right to self-organise
2. The law must work for women
3. And end to violence against women and girls
4. Nothing about us without us
5. Sex matters

Very few women – or men – knew about plans to change the GRA until women started speaking up. These were plans which would have a direct impact on whole of society and yet women were criticised for wanting to make their views known. Our submission is here…
In the end thousands of people responded to the GRA consultation which meant these plans were better scrutinised than they might have been – despite some people wanting to stitch things up behind closed doors… Image
Women need a seat at the table and have every right to expect this as default. We were pleased to see that @fairplaywomen were invited to attend the meeting on the census in June and that they queried why they were the only women's group attending.…
