With Laura Miles, author of 'Pride, Politics and Protest'.

And Lou Harrison, Women's Lives Matter member, campaigner for domestic violence services

Proposals to update the Gender Recognition Act, introduce self- declaration and include non-binary in the Census have beeen attacked by sections of the media and some radical feminists. A wave of transphobic scaremongering has led the Tories to indefinately delay a planned consultation. Trans people are paying the price. Yet most women's organisations have welcomed the proposals and remains trans-inclusive.

This meeting will discuss the socialist approach to women's and trans people's rights, how we resist transphobia and women's oppression and fight for trans and women's liberation.
