Activists refute accusations of transphobia
PRESS RELEASE – issued 12th February 2020
Thousands tweet #expelme in support of women’s rights and free speech
Women members of the Labour Party have hit back at claims that campaigning for women’s rights is ‘transphobic’.
The women are part of the same group which launched the Labour Women’s Declaration (LWD), which quickly gained almost 3,500 signatures of support, including from councillors and MSPs, when it went live last November. The declaration calls on Labour to uphold the right of women to discuss and debate matters affecting them.
