A campaign group is planning to post MPs' responses to the question 'what is a woman?' online

MPs who say that “women can have a penis” are to have their names made public ahead of the general election.

A campaign group is intending to ask all MPs the question “What is a woman?”, with their responses to be uploaded online for the public to see.

The group plans to encounter MPs and parliamentary candidates at hustings and even by knocking on their front doors.

The responses – which will be uploaded onto a soon-to-be launched website – will allow voters to find out their MP’s stance on trans issues, the Telegraph reportS.

By answering the questions, the MPs will disclose their views on what constitutes a woman: whether they think that biological sex cannot be changed, or whether they believe that transgender women count as females too.

MPs on the left are not united on what the definition of a woman is.

Keir Starmer said that “99.9 per cent of women… haven’t got a penis” whilst Lib Dem leader Ed Davey said women could “quite clearly” have a penis.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said: “A woman, when it comes to biology and sex, is an adult girl… trans women can also be women as well.”


On the right, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has stated that a “woman is an adult human female”.

The campaign’s ambassador and former Olympic swimmer, Sharon Davies MBE, said the group wanted to help voters “know if their MP will stand up for women”.

The group, who claims to be apolitical, said that they are posing the question and publishing the answers in order to achieve “transparency and honesty”.

Davies said: “This is a David vs Goliath battle but we are winning. Having battled all my life for fairness in sport where women are disadvantaged, I am delighted to back this campaign.

“The sex and gender debate is fundamentally about a conflict of rights between men who identify as women and those of women and girls. If your MP or candidate – our future lawmakers – do not know what a woman is, how can they fight for us, our rights, our safety, and our hard fought for equalities & opportunities.

“This campaign will bring honesty to politics and to the debate, so every voter in the country knows if their MP will stand up for women.”

All volunteers will be subject to training on how to respectfully approach MPs.

Earlier this week, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) reversed its guidance on trans students at school.

It had previously said that to misgender them would be a discriminatory act.

The advice has since been deleted after many campaigners challenged it.
