A letter to be signed immediately! (to be handed in on 8 March).
In the United States theEquality Act, already passed in the House of Representatives, is about to be approved in the Senate. As Feminist Post has told you on several occasions, theEquality ActThe Biden administration's intention is to replace the concept of 'sex' with that of 'gender identity', erasing women, girls and children and making being a woman a 'choice' available to men.
Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rightswhich has a network of 15,000 members worldwide - and of which RadFem Italia is the Italian reference point - has sent a letter of appeal to Charles Schumer, the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, pointing out that the 'European Union is not a member of the Senate.Equality Act As it stands, if approved, it would constitute a dangerous benchmark for legislation around the world.
We would like to remind you that the Zan law against homobi-transphobia, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies and is waiting to be discussed in the Senate, also introduces the concept of "gender identity" in Italy. It is therefore a worldwide lobby that in coordinated action works for the erasure of girls, girls and women to replace female sex with "gender identity" in national and international legislation.
That's why this letter to the US Senate needs to be signed by as many people as possible, and signed NOW! WHRC intends to deliver it on 8 March, together with an alternative bill: theEquality for All Act.
You can subscribe to it by clicking here . This is a very important action, you too can participate and share as much as possible!

In sisterhood, 
Jo Brew and Kara Dansky

The Honorable Charles Schumer
Majority Leader
United States Senate

Dear Senator Schumer,
We represent women all around the world and we are writing to share our concerns with the U.S. Equality Act as it is currently drafted. The Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights has been signed by over 15,000 individuals all over the world, approximately 2000 of whom live in the U.S. Its intent is to protect women and girls globally by ensuring that sex is maintained as a discrete category in numerous areas in the law. We encourage you to read its provisions.

Our understanding is that the current version of the U.S. Equality Act, which passed in the House of Representatives earlier this year, would redefine the word sex to include "gender identity" throughout U.S. Civil Rights Law. "Gender identity," which the Equality Act defines in a circular fashion with reference to "gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics,"is, in practice, the mechanism by which individuals may claim the identity of the opposite sex. It has no basis in material reality.

Although the enactment of the Equality Act would only affect U.S. women directly, we are terrified of the impact that such enactment is likely to have globally. Our governments look to your government for leadership, expertise, and guidance. Already, we are seeing the word sex being redefined to include "gender identity" in laws throughout the U.K., the European Union, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. These laws have had devastating impacts on the lives of women and girls, including the rapes of vulnerable women in prison, the inclusion of men in women's spaces such as locker rooms and changing rooms, and the inclusion of men in women's sports. This situation will only get worse if this law passes in the U.S., and similar laws are likely to extend to other geographic areas as well.

We understand that the U.S. chapter of the Women's Human Rights Campaign (WHRC) has shared with you information about the alternative they have proposed, the Equality for All Act. This bill is in alignment with the Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights, and we strongly urge you to consider introducing it in the U.S. Senate.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Women and girls all over the world are depending on your leadership.

Honourable Senator Schumer,

we represent women all over the world and we are writing to share our concerns about the U.S. Equality Act as it is currently drafted. The Declaration on women's rights based on gender has been signed by more than 15,000 people worldwide, about 2,000 of whom live in the United States. Its intent is protecting women and girls globally by ensuring that gender is maintained as a distinct category in many areas of legislationPlease read what it has to say.

From what we understand the current version of the US Equality Act passed in the House of Representatives earlier this year, would redefine the word sex to include 'gender identity' in all US civil rights legislation. "Gender Identity", which theEquality Act tautologically defines referring to ".identity, appearance, behaviour or other gender-related characteristics"is in practice the mechanism by which individuals can claim the identity of the opposite sex, which is something that has no basis in material reality.

Although the enactment of theEquality Act would directly affect only US women, the impact it could have on a global level is terrifying. Our governments look to the US government as a model of leadership, competence and guidance. We are already witnessing the redefinition of the word sex to include "gender identity" in the laws of the United Kingdom, the European Union, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. These laws have had a devastating impact on the lives of women and girlsincluding rape of vulnerable women in prison, inclusion of men in women's spaces such as changing rooms and locker rooms, and inclusion of men in women's sports. This situation will worsen if the law is passed in the United States, and it is likely that similar laws will extend to other geographical areas.

We know that the US section of Women's Human Rights Campaign (WHRC) has already submitted an alternative, the Equality for All Act. This bill is in line with the Declaration of Women's Rights based on Genderand we strongly urge you to consider introducing it in the United States Senate. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Women and girls all over the world depend on its leadership.

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

Transgender: the victory of Puer Aeternus
An evolution of the unisex who struggled against gender stereotypes, the 'gender' phenomenon among adolescents expresses the attempt to escape the biological debt-obligation and the need to feel disengaged from stepmotherly nature. But the transgender person is by no means his or her own creator: if anything, he or she is subservient to a totipotent 'spirit' that enslaves the mind and psyche. And the gay movement that advocates puerile simulation fails to see that it is precisely homosexual identity that comes off worst
Transgender ideology goes beyond the transsexual claim of the construction of sex by subtraction or addition of something from a matrix, because it challenges the very existence of the male and the female, and especially the latter, making the female gender a product of educational norms, DIY craftsmanship, beauty shop, chemical laboratory, surgical table. Both appeal to the 'truth' of the omnipotent creation of the sexes, destitute of actual reality. Young women in particular are unfortunately fertile ground [...].

Jama: when men give birth
In an incredible, recently published study, the American Medical Association's journal, one of the most important in the field, tries to give scientific backing to the idea that childbirth is not just a female experience. Because if it were exclusive, it would also be exclusionary. An operation on language in collision with reality
As we know, there are words that can no longer be used, especially in international scientific documents and studies. At the top of the list of tabooed words are all the terms that have to do with female difference understood as the exclusive possibility of giving birth to human beings, and thus: 'woman' -if biologically understood and not open to define persons not born women-, 'mother' and 'maternal', 'breast', with reference to breast-feeding, and so on. The operation on language aims to qualify [...].

Legislation against violence against women should talk about sex and not 'gender identity': open letter to the European Parliament
Violence against women will not be combated if the texts of laws and treaties do not clearly refer to sex and not 'gender'. We join feminist and gender critical groups in an appeal to MEPs who will vote on the Commission's anti-violence proposal: write clearly in the text that women and girls are the female sex and leave no room for gender ideology
We, too, signed the letter to the European Commission on combating violence against women and domestic abuse drafted by WORIADS, a coalition of gender-critical citizens whose aim is to inform and raise awareness of the dangers of gender identity in the European institutions. The letter demands that European regulations on violence against women clearly recognise the category of biological sex. Below is the full text that will be sent to the members of the European Parliament who will vote on the [...].

The Bundestag is preparing to vote on a proposal modelled on the horrible Spanish law that allows free choice of gender even for minors with a simple self-declaration at the registry office (in addition to the possibility of changing one's mind several times). Also in the front line here is a left-wing woman counterpart of Irene Montero: the Green Minister for Women's Affairs Lisa Paus. But the opinion of the Federal Constitutional Court, which expresses many doubts about the deletion of the category 'sex', will be needed.
What is a woman? The answer that Justice Minister Buschmann (FDP, Liberal Democratic Party) and Women's Affairs Minister Lisa Paus (Greens, pictured) give to this question is: a woman is anyone who claims to be a woman. This is the core of the 'bill on self-determination in gender registration' that both ministries have now presented. With a simple declaration at the registry office, everyone will in future be able to change their sex: from male to [...]

UK: 'Our children indoctrinated at school'. Parents of 'trans' children sue government
"You have ruined our children': families of minors who declare themselves to be 'of the opposite sex' are suing the British Department of Education for allowing trans-indoctrination in schools by Stonewall and other powerful LGBT organisations -the same propaganda that we would have liked to introduce with the Zan bill-. And for not having been informed in time about the children's discomfort. The initiative could sweep over the British government like an avalanche, which is running for cover by ordering an independent enquiry and drawing up new guidelines.
A group of parents of so-called 'trans children' are suing the UK Department of Education for steering their children towards the devastating medical transition. Specifically, the parents accuse the ministry of failing to provide guidance to teachers and doing nothing to prevent a 'harmful' gender ideology, pushed by LGBT pressure groups, from taking hold in thousands of schools. We have spoken about transpropaganda in schools many times: for more see here, and [...]
