WESC Inquiry on Gender Recognition Act reform – call for evidence

Nov 20, 2020 by

from Transgender Trend:

The Women and Equalities Select Committee (WESC) has launched an Inquiry into reform of the Gender Recognition Act (GRA). The Inquiry asks for evidence in two areas:

1. The government response to the Gender Recognition Act consultation. This rejected proposals for a ‘self-ID’ system and retained the checks and balances in the GRA, such as the requirement for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria to apply for a Gender Recognition Certificate.

2. Wider issues concerning transgender equality and current legislation.

You can read the WESC Inquiry call for evidence here. You can answer as many or as few questions as you like, just focus on the ones with the most relevance for you. Evidence can include your own experience (as a parent, teacher or clinical professional for example) and you can include links to studies or news reports etc. (but not evidence from ongoing court cases).

The deadline for submissions is Friday November 27th.

Below we have listed the most relevant questions you may want to answer and included a few links you may find useful.
