Declaration of Sex Based Rights

Join us in Leeds for a U.K. Launch of The Declaration of Sex Based Rights.

Academic, author and activist Dr. Sheila Jeffreys, sociologist and author Dr. Heather Brunskell-Evans, and lawyer and legal academic Maureen O’Hara will be presenting The Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights, for the first time in the U.K.

The meeting will be Chaired by Sarah Field, Leeds City Councillor for Garforth.

The Declaration re-affirms that women’s human rights are based upon sex.

Our panellists will speak about how the idea of ‘gender identity’ is eroding the notion and practice of women’s rights.

‘Gender identity’ is increasingly being used in an official capacity – for example the ability to change your ‘gender marker’ on the Leeds City Council website, with no checks or documentation.

They’ll explore how the official adoption of gender, as opposed to sex, endangers the rights of women and girl children to safety and dignity, and leads to discrimination against women in areas such as political representation, freedom of speech and association, sports and culture.

Join with women around the world to make a stand to defend our sex based rights, as laid out in the 1979 U.N. Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), ratified by the U.K. in 1986.
