Mumsnet “Manifesto” Urges Next Government to Define What a Woman Is in Equality Act

Mumsnet’s first-ever “manifesto” is calling on the next government to define what a woman is in the Equality Act. The Telegraph has the story.

The popular online forum released a 25-page document on Friday which it said represented the chief concerns expressed by its nine million users over the past four-and-a-half years.

It has 12 asks of the incoming administration after July 4th, including to “guarantee access to single-sex spaces” for women by reforming the 2010 Equality Act.

The legislation sets out “protected characteristics”, including sex, gender reassignment, age, disability, sexual orientation, race and religion, against which it is unlawful to discriminate.

But the “Mumsnet manifesto” warns that the definition of “sex” in the law is currently unclear, which could put spaces such as women-only refuges and prisons at risk.

The document says: “The next government should amend the Equality Act to make it clear that ‘sex’ refers to biological sex, thus protecting women’s right to access female-only spaces such as hospital wards, changing rooms and refuges.”
