Co-op Bank refuses account to feminist group known for its transphobia


The Co-operative Bank refused a bank account to a feminist group because it denied the rights of the transgender community. The bank published its Values and Ethics Report 2017 which revealed that a number of account application had been refused because the group’s views went contrary the bank’s equality and inclusion policy. The publication adds that it refused the same services to a “charity directly linked to an organization which was classified as a cult outside of the UK, and whose members had been denied basic human rights.” The bank stated that it supports the rights of all women, no matter trans or cis. The report shows that The Co-operative Bank also refused banking services to an individual with links to an oppressive regime, and to another person involved in selling mink scarves.
