Obviously MNHQ are aware of the huge concerns being expressed by women across the boards about the upcoming Gender Identity Bill debate, and the lack of, or total absence of, consideration given to women's concerns for our rights and protections as a distinct group with specific concerns, within this.

Could we therefore invite Caroline Flint to come onto MN for a webchat, as she was the only MP who gave voice to the potential implications within this for women, and I feel that she will therefore engage in this debate where other MPs have stonewalled us on this, and where we've been admonished for trying to insist on being heard and responded to when a mass of women's voices are ignored.

Caroline Flint has said:

“There has to be room for a progressive discussion which addresses transgender discrimination and rights, alongside that of women’s safety.”

Surely that is true?

Can we please make MN the place where women's concerns at last get openly aired and discussed with someone who has the ability to represent those concerns in parliament.

Give us our voice.

Id really like this, especially as the focus would be on how it could affect womens right and sex discrimination laws which is something that affects us all.

Yes please. Particularly in light of the Jenni Murray that is now getting support from mainstream media.

Also I'd like to ask her about her political career over the years, as well as her current stand on women's safety and women's rights.

Thank you. I hope we can do this, soon.
