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!

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.

British academics against cancel culture
On 20 November, the London Universities Council for Academic Freedom will be unveiled, a body that brings together a hundred or so professors from the major British universities with the intention of fighting against the censorship and single-mindedness that in recent years have impeded academic debate and freedom, compromising the education of thousands of students.

Canada: gender critical nurse risks her job
Amy Hamm works in a psychiatric ward and is under investigation for promoting women's rights based on sex and child protection online. The BCCNM, the body that regulates the nursing profession, intends to suspend her unless she participates in a re-education programme but Amy opposes this: the hearing is underway. US journalist Megyn Kelly interviewed her
Canadian nurse Amy Hamm - one of the founders of the non-profit coalition Canadian Women Sex Based Rights (caWsbar) - works in an acute psychiatric ward specialising in mental health and substance use. Amy risks losing her nursing licence and her job because she allegedly promoted women's sex-based rights and child protection online.

No more drugs for children with gender dysphoria!
For many years a pioneer of puberty blocker and hormone-based treatments for 'gender non-conforming' minors, Finnish psychiatrist Riittakerttu Kaltiala now denounces these 'therapies' as dangerous, useless and lacking in scientific evidence. And she calls on doctors around the world to find the courage to break the silence imposed by activist censorship and the media's rubber wall
In Italy there persists an obstinate silence on pharmacological treatments for minors with gender dysphoria (puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, 'gender reassignment' surgery) according to the protocol of so-called gender affirmative therapy. It is not possible to know how many minors have been treated or are undergoing treatment, in how many and which centres they are treated and with what 'success' (or failure) rates. While throughout the Western world the debate has been open for some time and in some countries [...]

UK: out of women's hospital wards men who 'identify' as women
The woke initiative of the British Medical Association, which ordered its members to stop using the terms 'woman' and 'mother', is being answered by the Sunak government, which is reinstating the biological sex criterion and abandoning the gender identity criterion in the health service. Why we need to return to common sense
The battle rages in the UK over the physical and symbolic spaces reserved for women. The British General Medical Council, which in its guidelines ordered the deletion of the words 'woman' and 'mother', is shortly to be answered by the Sunak government's initiative to reinstate the biological sex criterion and abandon gender identity in the health service: MtF transsexuals -that is, biologically male- will no longer be housed in women's hospital wards even if they identify as women. This week [...]

UK, you can no longer say 'woman' or 'mother': woke provisions of the General Medical Council
Decision of unprecedented violence by the British Medical Register: the word woman must be deleted at every level. It cannot even be mentioned when discussing motherhood, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause. Even 999, the emergency number, can no longer ask what sex the person asking for help is. The woke know very well that the female body is the main obstacle to the transhuman project. And they want to erase it even in language
It keeps happening: women and mothers must also be erased from the vocabulary, at every level. They do not give up because the maternal symbolic is the most resistant obstacle to the transhuman project. We will not give up either. Forget it The General Medical Council -the public body that maintains the official register of doctors in the UK- has replaced the word 'mother' with neutral terms in its maternity guide for staff. The updated guide for employees who become pregnant omits [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]
