The gender equalities charity chief said that diversity within the feminist movement is a strength and should be celebrated.
Cerys Furlong said:
“Chwarae Teg stands firmly in support of trans equality and in our belief that trans women are women. Diversity within the feminist movement is a strength and something that we should all be celebrating. The tone of the debate around the gender recognition act has been disappointing and I am concerned that this has served to stoke prejudices and discrimination. As campaigners for equality we should always come from a position of inclusion, not of exclusion, and we should always strive to protect people from discrimination and prejudice.”
