Protecting Sex-Based Rights for Women and Girls

US Equality Act & Women

This site has been archived and will not be updated in the foreseeable future. The Equality Act (H.R.5) was passed in the House on February 25th, 2021. The Senate judiciary committee held hearings on the bill on March 17th, 2021. It has not been voted on in the Senate.

The Time to Act is NOW!

The Senate will vote soon on the Equality Act! If you’ve already contacted your Senator, here’s something else you can do: Check out our latest blog post to get a downloadable brochure you can circulate in your community.

The Equality Act was passed in the House of Representatives today, February 25th and the Senate will vote on it early next week!

President Biden has also issued an Executive Order directing federal agencies to review their policies, regulations, and guidances within the next 100 days, (commencing 1/20/2021), to determine what revisions should be made to prevent sex discrimination. 

As with the Equality Act, the EO does not treat “sex,” “sexual orientation,” and “gender identity,” as conceptually and analytically distinct categories. Instead, both the EA and the EO place all three in the category “sex.

What this means is that biological sex and gender identity are treated as the same, thereby negating women’s sex based rights. 

If the Executive Order results in policies that treat biological sex and gender identity as the same thing, or the Equality Act is introduced and passed, any male who declares himself to be a woman will be allowed to compete in female sport, enter private female spaces such as locker rooms, change rooms, and restrooms, and will be housed in female shelters and prisons. 

Already men claiming female identity have sexually harassed and assaulted women in prisons and shelters and won titles in women’s sports.

Women are fighting back with lawsuits and state legislation, but federal legislation would override state law.

We must act now to protect women’s safety, dignity, privacy, and rights. 

This website offers background information, articles, and lobbying tips to make it easier for busy citizens to put together persuasive letters and factual information packets for use in lobbying our legislators. 

The trans movement is well-financed and has many friends in high places.

Our only hope is a massive grass-roots effort to pressure the Democrats to amend the Equality Act.
