Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter is committed to advocating for women’s equality. Our centre works as an active force dedicated to challenge the social attitudes, laws and institutional procedures that perpetuate male violence against women and children.
Women are human beings. We believe the gender identity ideology movement dehumanizes women and girls. Legal protection of women’s and girls’ human rights, including those fought for over decades, are sacrificed in favor of the rights of men who declare themselves women.
We The Females is a growing group of Canadian women from all walks of life who are deeply worried about the loss of female rights and the medicalization of children resulting from Bill C-16. This legislation puts children at risk and sacrifices the rights of females by allowing “self-identification” of gender, which gives any male the right to declare himself a woman and to access women’s protected spaces.
Woman’s Place UK is a group of people from a range of backgrounds including trade unions, women’s organisations, academia and the NHS. We are united by our belief that women’s hard-won rights must be defended.
We are against all forms of discrimination. We believe in the right of everyone to live their lives free from discrimination and harassment. Women face entrenched and endemic structural inequality.
We are a group of parents based in the UK who are concerned about the current trend to diagnose children as transgender, including the unprecedented number of teenage girls suddenly self-identifying as ‘trans’ (Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria or ROGD). We are also concerned about legislation which places transgender rights above the right to safety for girls and young women in public toilets and changing rooms along with fairness for girls in sport.
A group of over 500 people (and growing) who came together on Mumsnet, although not all of us are parents, sharing the same concern that our rights and choices are being eroded as part of a cultural shift towards denying human biology on the part of decision-makers, businesses, services and the media.
Fair Play For Women is a campaigning and consultancy group which raises awareness, provides evidence and analysis, and supports policy-makers to protect the rights of women and girls in the UK.
We are concerned that, in the rush to reform transgender laws and policies, women’s voices are not being heard or listened to. Run by a team of volunteers with skills in many different disciplines, without any corporate sponsorship or formal funding, we work hard to bring this issue to public attention.
The SSA campaign is focused on working with schools and educators to ensure that school policies meet the safeguarding needs of all students whilst taking into account the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010. We endeavour to provide clarity on the law and offer unbiased, evidence-based guidance and support where conflict between protected characteristics arises.
The existence of transsexual people, and the move towards transgenderism as a form of identity politics, present us with hugely difficult and complicated questions, of both a philosophical and practical nature – questions such as: what does it mean to be a woman? What are the origins of women’s subordination and oppression? What forms of social and political organisation are necessary to remedy this continued oppression?
OBJECT campaigns against the sexual objectification of women and the oppression of women as a sex class. OBJECT takes action founded on understanding. OBJECT promotes understanding of the objectification and oppression of women from a radical feminist perspective.
To prevent the over-medicalization of gender nonconforming youth. To prevent harm resulting from medical treatments on trans-identified minors. And to address confusion and rights conflicts that arise from new ideologies about gender (within and outside of the LGBT community). This will be done through outreach to the mental health and medical community, LGBT orgs, parents, schools, media, and the public.
4thWaveNow was started by the mother of a teenage girl who suddenly announced she was a “trans man” after a few weeks of total immersion in YouTube transition vlogs and other trans-oriented social media. (The daughter has since desisted from identifying as transgender.) After much research and fruitless searching for an alternative online viewpoint, this mom began writing about her deepening skepticism of the ever-accelerating medical and media fascination with the phenomenon of “transgender children.”
WLRN seeks to provide the unique and under-represented voices of girls and women with a national and international grassroots venue to break the sound barrier women are blocked by under the status quo rule of men. We are a non-commercial, member-operated news and cultural information team strictly guided by the principles of radical feminism. We promote access to media production equipment and tools so that silenced women can “be the media.”
A non-partisan organization whose mission is to promote policies and laws that protect young people from medical and psychological harms. Our inspiration is the courageous FDA pharmacologist Dr. Frances Kelsey, whose refusal to authorize thalidomide for market use in 1961 prevented thousands of serious birth defects and helped strengthen FDA oversight of the pharmaceutical industry. Dr. Kelsey's bravery in the face of immense corporate and political pressure has inspired us to speak truth to power, regardless of the personal cost or strength of our opposition.
