Labour MP Rosie Duffield backs campaign to protect sex-based rights in local election

Labour MP Rosie Duffield last night threw her weight behind a major campaign to urge the public to grill local election candidates on their definition of the word woman.

Women’s rights groups have banded together to call on voters to question politicians over their views on the contentious topics of sex and gender identity.

Now Miss Duffield, who has been accused of transphobia over her views including that transgender women should not be able to access single-sex spaces such as domestic violence refuges and prisons, welcomed the campaign, which uses the slogan ‘Respect my Sex if you want my X’.
