Anti-trans campaigners are threatening to resign massively if the party approves the ruling according to which trans women are to be recognized as women and allowed to join women-only spaces. After a surge in anti-trans rhetoric, a fringe group of women’s rights campaigners within the party had led calls for transgender women to be banned from standing on the party’s women-only shortlists for Parliament, which are used in a bid to boost the number of female MPs, even though there has never been an openly trans MP in the party. The Equalities subcommittee of the ruling National Executive Committee greenlit a statement rebuffing the activists’ demands, and vowing to keep the party trans-inclusive.The news has led to threats of mass resignations from anti-transgender campaigners, who expressed their irritation via social media.
