Standing for Women, a British grassroots organization focused on promoting a clear definition of the word "woman" was banned from Twitter on Monday. The group was founded by women's rights activist Kellie-Jay Keen (also known as "Posie Parker"), who was personally banned from Twitter in 2018.
The account is managed by EcuadorianMum, who goes by "Iris," and is responsible for communications and social media at Standing for Women. According to a screenshot Iris posted on Monday morning, the StandingforXX account was suspended by Twitter due to "violating our rules against ban evasion."
According to both Iris (who is not banned) and Keen, Iris is the sole manager of the account and Keen has not been active on Twitter since she was banned four years ago.
During a livestream on her Youtube channel, Keen stated, "I am not on Twitter. I haven't been on Twitter since 2018." She elaborated that she believes Twitter had banned her IP address entirely, and that no one in her house was able to create a Twitter account for a time.
In a statement posted to their website, Standing for Women announced that they plan to appeal the suspension.
