Trans legal recognition

I served on the women’s and equality committee when this enquiry was done and the recommendations from that committee are forming the basis of the current review. I agree the current system is not working for people who want to transition and we need to speed up the process but also offer more support and access to services for those who want to transition. There is no date for new legislation to come forward as yet and so we will keep asking ministers to look at this as soon as possible.

Many feminists have raised concerns to ensure that any change in legislation does not affect vulnerable women and it will be a delicate balance to improve the rights for the trans community and reassure women that their rights are protected too.
