There is to be a Judicial Review (7 Jan) challenging the Scottish Government's decision to use a new definition of the word 'woman' in their Gender Representation on Public Boards Act.
It is feared that this Act would be used to set a precedent for acceptance of self-identification of sex.
"A 2019 Scottish Government consultation said evidence that a person was continuously living as a woman would include “always using female pronouns; using a female name on official documents such as a driving licence or passport, or on utility bills or bank accounts; describing themselves and being described by others in written or other communication using female language".
This definition of woman goes beyond the Equality Act which defines a woman as a female of any age."
