What chance of a fair hearing?
Women will ask: when Scottish Government Ministers have so quickly abandoned their commitment to respectful debate and MSPs charged with scrutinising gender recognition reform are so thoroughly compromised, what hope is there of a fair hearing?
We thank JK, Johann, Joan and Joanna for showing incredible solidarity and strength towards women. We salute these wonderful women today and every day.
