The case arose when students complained that plaintiff Drew Adams, a female student, was using the boys’ bathrooms at the Allen D. Nease High School outside of Jacksonville, Florida.

Today, the Women's Liberation Front (WoLF) filed a friend-of-the-court brief  in the case of Doe v. Boyertown Area School District, Supreme Court Docket No. 18-658.

The Baltimore LGBTQ Commission’s Law and Policy Committee recently held an emergency meeting aimed at eliminating lesbian representation on the Commission. Several women who are longtime residents of the region attended on the evening of December 4, 2018, to support the woman targeted by the meeting, twenty-five year-old Julia Beck.

Gender identity policies are an attack on women’s sports

Due to recent news in what was formerly women’s cycling, where a man named Rachel McKinnon took home first prize in yet another women’s cycling competition, we note that several governing bodies of major sporting leagues and competitions have decided to pretend that they don’t know what women are. No such governing bodies or leagues had a problem figuring out what a woman was before women were allowed to have any public sports; they knew exactly who wasn’t allowed to compete. Sign the petition: No men in women’s sports! It’s still newsworthy when female ...

On Escalating, Recent Violence

This past week, gunmen have taken black elders from the American community who lived through the Jim Crow era, and Jewish elders who remembered the Holocaust. This summer, there was a mass shooting at a newspaper, by a man who wanted to punish the media. There have been several recent mass shootings by men taking revenge on women who’d upset them. The victims have all been peaceable people going about their daily activities, their lives stolen prematurely by men who decided that their inflamed grievances or convictions justified murder. Each of these men seemed to ...

In the lead-up to the end of the consultation on the UK’s Gender Recognition Act —where PM Theresa May’s Conservative government now proposes to obliterate women’s rights to single-sex accommodations by allowing self-identification of sex on birth certificates — over 100 nonprofits, corporations, and public sector organizations have stepped forward with an ad in the Metro, opposing women’s rights to be recognized in the law as more than a feeling in a man’s head. Listed are several UK government agencies, including two police forces, the UK Intellec...
