Hello

We’re delighted to announce a Mumsnet Zoomchat with senior staff journalist at The Economist Helen Joyce about her new book 'Trans'.

To quote the book jacket: "Gender identity ideology is about more than Twitter storms and using the right pronouns. In just ten years, laws, company policies, school and university curricula, sport, medical protocols, and the media have been reshaped to privilege self-declared gender identity over biological sex."

"People are being shamed and silenced for attempting to understand the consequences of redefining ‘man’ and ‘woman’. While compassion for transgender lives is well-intentioned, it is stifling much-needed inquiry into the significance of our bodies, particularly with regard to women’s rights, fairness in sport, same sex attraction and children’s development."

Helen will be chatting with Mumsnet HQ and answering your questions on Tuesday 27 July at 8pm, and you can book your place now by registering here.

Please note We can only take questions from Zoomchat attendees on the night - please don’t ask questions in advance as we can’t promise we’ll be able to put them forwards.

Thanks
MNHQ

Thank you for arranging. Funnily enough just come back from Waterstones where I’d just placed my order.
