In March, national organisations working for women's equality in Scotland produced a joint response to the Scottish Government's consultation on proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act.

In it, we express broad support for the Scottish Government proposals, confirm our view that the proposals won't undermine the safety and dignity of women accessing women-only services, and make some detailed recommendations around next steps.

This event is to enable people to hear from representatives from women's equality organisations and Scottish Trans Alliance and ask any questions they might have about women's equality and the gender recognition act.

The venue is accessible, and we will be using amplification throughout the event. Tea, coffee and cake will be provided.

Please register in advance, as further information about format will be sent to participants beforehand.

The booking deadline for this event has passed. If you would like to attend, please email info@engender.org.uk.
