Commit to Standing with Women!

Words like ‘female,’ ‘male,’ ‘man,’ and ‘woman’ are used thousands of times in state and federal law. Politicians are redefining these words and separating them from biology and their true meaning.  We need to define terms like ‘woman’ in order to prevent sex discrimination and preserve women’s rights, safety, and opportunities.

71% of Americans want assurance that men won’t gain unfettered access to women’s spaces and athletic and academic opportunities. We need to have language to provide this protection.

When these sex-based words don’t have uniform, biological definitions, women pay the price.

Urge your Members of Congress to commit to legislation that upholds laws that preserve female opportunities and private spaces. Show that you support leaders who are pro-woman, pro-science, and will fight for policies that prevent sex discrimination and preserve women’s rights, safety, and opportunities!

Tell the NCAA Board of Governors: Protect Women’s Collegiate Sports

In the world of college sports, it is impossible to provide equal opportunities for both sexes without single-sex teams. By allowing biological males on women’s teams the NCAA is denying women roster spots, playing time, and opportunities to compete.

This is sex discrimination.

Tell the NCAA Board of Governors to follow the lead of the NAIA and protect women’s collegiate sports and establish a new policy keeping women’s sports female.

Planet Fitness, Protect Our Rights!

Planet Fitness is endangering its female members.

A Planet Fitness gym in Alaska allowed a trans-identifying biological male into a female-designated bathroom. The individual was caught shaving in front of a 12-year-old girl in a towel.  

When a female member complained, the gym canceled her membership and banned her from returning. Planet Fitness is standing by this decision

By allowing biological men to use female-designated bathrooms, Planet Fitness is compromising both privacy and safety for its female members and ignoring the very real dangers posed by men in women’s spaces.

Planet Fitness must understand that women have a right to speak their minds and to fight for private spaces. The company should not force women—some of whom are underage or have been victims of sexual assault and don’t want to have to change in front of biological men—into situations that make them uncomfortable and put them at risk.  

Take Action! Send a message to Planet Fitness leadership to respect the privacy and safety of their female members. 

Show women of all ages that they have support and can stand up to Planet Fitness. Together, we can ask for a policy change that supports common sense protections for women! 

Etsy Must Stop Viewpoint Discrimination!

Etsy has banned products and sellers that criticize the government, make political points that they don’t like, or stand up for women’s rights.  

Over a year ago, Etsy banned merchandise made by a biologist affirming that biological sex is real. Instead of following the standard review process, the company permanently revoked his Etsy store and account for violating “a policy aimed at preventing the sale of products that promote violence toward protected groups.”  

Nearly a year later, Etsy threatened to permanently ban Independent Women’s storyteller, Laura Becker, from selling on Etsy because her products acknowledged the harms of gender ideology and the stories of detransitioners like herself. At first all of Becker’s products—even those that have nothing to do with gender identity—were removed or listed as unavailable. While Becker is allowed to sell now, her products related to detransitioning are still listed as unavailable on the popular e-commerce site. Learn more about her story here.

Etsy hasn’t stopped its viewpoint discrimination. It has now banned one-of-a-kind homemade ornaments made by female entrepreneur, Isabel, that criticize the government. Isabel proclaimed in response, “If our voices held no power, they wouldn’t be trying to silence us!!!”

Etsy will not stop viewpoint discrimination unless we do something about it!        

As Becker declared, “It is time to boycott Etsy. They do not support free speech, women, or medical trauma survivors.” 

Tell Etsy Execs to STOP viewpoint discrimination and the silencing of truth.

Speak Up for Women’s Spaces at the YMCA!

The YMCA is letting down its female members in communities across the nation. By allowing biological men to use female-designated locker rooms and bathrooms, the Y is compromising both privacy and safety. But that’s not all. Some YMCAs have even gone so far as to ban females who object to these practices from using their facilities. 

In Illinois, 16-year-old Abbigail Wheeler was kicked off the YMCA’s club swim team and then banned from the Springfield YMCA for voicing her concerns about sharing a women’s changing space with a male. 

Abigail’s sister, Kaitlynn Wheeler, a former NCAA swimmer and teammate of Riley Gaines at the University of Kentucky, said: “It is crazy to me that we are having this conversation. The safety and security of females in women-only spaces should be protected — otherwise it is false advertising to have sex-specific spaces and opportunities. Forcing any woman — especially minor girls — to share a locker room and undress before a male is irresponsible and inappropriate and undermines a woman’s human rights, respect, and dignity.”

In Port Townsend, Washington, 80-year-old Julie Jaman, who was a 35-year regular at her local YMCA, was banned from that facility’s pool for complaining about a transgender worker who was present in a women’s private changing space as mothers removed little girls’ bathing suits.

Most recently, a group of female athletes and parents voiced concerns about a transgender individual groping and leering at young girls at small-town YMCAs in suburban Ohio.  

The YMCA, can and should do what is right and play a leadership role by ensuring women continue to feel safe in their facilities. 

The YMCA should understand that biological differences between the sexes sometimes warrant the creation of separate social, educational, athletic, or other spaces in order to ensure safety and/or to allow members of each sex to feel safe, succeed and thrive. Read more.

Take Action! Send a message to YMCA leadership to respect the privacy and safety of their female members

Show women of all ages that they have support and can stand up to the YMCA. Together, we can ask for a policy change that supports common sense protections for women’s privacy and safety! 

Protect Student Safety and Privacy

Schools must be safe environments for students to learn and thrive. New Mexico’s Public Education Department must thoroughly investigate sexual assaults that are taking place in schools and enact policies to better protect students.

Recently, a middle school student went public describing how she was allegedly raped in a middle school bathroom. Evidence exists that she was not the only victim at that school—other girls were also harassed. Horrifyingly, little seems to have been done to find the perpetrator or to ensure that girls are protected from similar predators moving forward.

Parents and all concerned citizens in New Mexico deserve answers.

  • What is being done to investigate these allegations?
  • What is the New Mexico Public Education Department doing to prevent sexual assault from taking place in schools?
  • What actions are being taken specifically to protect girls’ safety and privacy in bathrooms and locker rooms?

Tell New Mexico’s Public Education Department to take sexual assault and students’ safety in schools seriously and to further investigate these recent reports.
