@UKLabour@MarshadeCordova As well as omitting one of the 9 protected characteristics, Marsha de Cordova MP the shadow minister for WOMEN and Equalities, seems to have totally forgotten that the Labour Party manifesto of 2019 said

This is how they say they will change the law "A Labour government will reform the Gender Recognition Act and the Equality Act 2010 to ensure they protect Trans people by changing the protected characteristic of ‘gender assignment’ to ‘gender identity’
