And so single sex exemptions (which were always intended to be biological sex) can be enforced correctly.

Signed and wow, you can watch it go up in real time!

As I write this it's just gone over 7,000! It was 6980 when I started the comment :).

It just passed 12,500 in front of my eyes and is still going! This is fantastic!

It was2000 something when I signed just before I posted here. It’ll be full by bedtime.

In all articles, discussions and petitions etc we need to make clear what country it is for. These are international efforts. I was about to sign then I saw there was discussion of "parliament" which we do not have in the US (I missed the part about "people in the UK"). I've read similar articles before where it took a while to realize which region of the world was being discussed or no region was mentioned at all just a local city/county department name. Perhaps an addition to the Petitions like "Petition-US" "Petition-UK" "Petition-Canada" "Petition- Intl"?

Sex Matters is a UK organisation founded because Maya won her court case to get sex matters recognised as a philosophical belief protected characteristic of our equality act. Obviously a UK organisation will have a petition for UK law and the link they have goes to a UK petition site.

Its too late now! :) And to what I was saying before. In recognition that this is an international forum that should be posted in the headline or in the first sentence of any postings like this. We do try to keep up with other country politics, but we can't assume everyone knows everything or even remembers everything especially local organizations and departments. This is a growing community. Not everyone lives in the UK here on the platform.

But you would know if an organisation is in your country or relating to your countries laws. So if it’s not it’s self explanatory.

I like this approach! It echoes the Women's Bill of Rights that was put forward in the US.
