Are there posts or websites with timelines of the new suffragette movement? I have been wondering if there are notable wins for women's rights in current events. I could only think of a few.

  • Feb 2022 - Scotland and the redefinition of woman - a win for women
  • June 2022 - Internation Rugby Association bans transgender athletes
  • July 2022 - Tavistock clinic announced plan to be close by 2023
  • August 2022 - Moira Szilagyi of American Academy of Pediatrics writes that gender-affirming care . . . doesn’t push medical treatments or surgery; for the vast majority of children, it recommends the opposite

I don't think any organisation is banning transgender athletes. They're banning men from competing in women's sports categories.

Right. Men can compete against other TIMs

Men can compete with men, women can compete with women (though as I haven't really been following this closely I don't know what the best option is for women who are doping with testosterone). It's not really that complicated.

I don't care if women who are doping compete with men(or any women, really, since men don't lose anything) but against women they should be treated as any other athlete would and be disqualified for performance-enhancing drugs.

They shouldn't compete or they have to change the regulations against doping. I play with doped players, I don't think is fair.I think many non testing championships should begin to test now.

There’s a tone more than this recently, in the UK at least.

Glinner has a round up on his email newsletter, Women’s Rights Network do also. There was a thread asking here a few days ago about bad news for women; asking for good news, where we all contributed a lot from UK.

I don’t recall dates well. But recently conversion therapy bill was stopped (after the GRA reform self ID bill stopped). Cass review interim report, that led to GIDS closing and the new regional services being mh lead as primary treatment. Children’s commissioner investigating RSE teaching. Schools bill proposals including legal right for parents to see and challenge all RSE teaching materials. Suella Braverman’s courageous speech this summer, where she thanked MF and agreed with her, and her giant promotion to home sec, as well as being given free reign to choose her own junior doctors. Kemi’s recent interviews, equally courageous and direct, and also given cabinet position. Truss a couple of days into PM vowing to stop NS Scottish self ID reforms (all this even a year ago would have been unheard of, the nodebate is over). LT continued her vow to protect single sex spaces. NZ equalities minister whose been direct about GC stuff. MD culture & sport minister, she also stood up for KS. MC has gracefully spoke up about gender ideology harms in schools in hoc repeatedly. AB trial result. MF result. SA result. JE tribunal started. Mermaids against LGBA started today, and the judge is not pandering to them. Lots of sporting associations are reverting to single sex category. Class action lawsuit against Tavi announced.

There’s simply tones in the UK just now.

The UK is progressing. Finland and other Nordic countries are questioning the medicalization of children. In the US, it is still blue states against red and little progress is to be seen.

Agree. Holland have made progress also. But the impact here will filter over time.
