Frontline Feminists Scotland values the role of Unions in our society. Many of our members are also members of a Union and often look to them for guidance and support in our many roles in our communities.
Unfortunately the Unions have not engaged sufficiently with women to encourage full discussion on Gender Reform or understand the ramifications of Self ID for women's Safety.
It is vital that women who are members of Unions make their voices heard. The desire to support communities who experience discrimination, such as the Trans community, is commendable, but that cannot be to the detriment of other oppressed groups, in this case women, particularly working class women.
Our members are keen to engage with women Trade Unionists and Fiona has been coordinating gender critical groups across the UK. For more information on these groups contact
