Women Are Real

Women deserve dignity and safety in sports, locker rooms, prisons, and shelters.
When anyone can self-identify into women-only spaces, these spaces are no longer single-sex.
Trans-identified people must have civil rights, such as protection from housing and employment discrimination, but those rights need not come at a cost to women’s safety and dignity.
