A grassroots campaign in the U.K., fronted by Sharron Davies, plans to ask politicians a simple question: What is a woman? They’ll record the answers and create a website so voters can see where their representatives stand on the definition of a woman. The Telegraph has the story.
An “army” of volunteers in an apolitical new grassroots campaign is gearing up to meet all MPs and parliamentary candidates at hustings events and on their doorsteps to ask each one the question: “What is a woman?”
Their answers will be video recorded and uploaded individually to a website which is being launched in the coming months.
It will allow voters to find out instantly whether their next MP thinks women must be born female and that binary biological sex cannot be changed, or whether they believe that male-born transgender women are women too.
Sharron Davies MBE, the former Olympic swimmer and feminist campaigner who has been appointed as the campaign’s first ambassador, said it would let voters “know if their MP will stand up for women”.
