"A review of the Equality legislation is planned to begin in 2021, this will incorporate consideration of the gender ground..." What implications does this have for women and girls?
A commitment was given in the Programme for Government in 2020 to add "gender identity" to our equality legislation.
As a result of the capture of our legislature and agencies by gender identity ideology males with a female "gender identity" may be permitted to access women and girls hitherto single-sex facilities, such as toilets, claiming "discrimination" if not allowed to.
The statement today by @rodericogorman @LeoVaradkar @dcediy does nothing to reassure women and girls that our rights to single-sex facilities as protected by the exemption under "gender" in our equality legislation will be maintained, where it is defined as male and female.
