Women Speak Tasmania: Invitation …




Wednesday 12 December 2018

12 noon to 2.00 pm 

Venue by application 


Women Speak Tasmania invites you to attend an information forum to discuss attacks on the human rights and  freedom of speech of women by the global trans lobby.

Worldwide, trans activists routinely attempt to discredit and no-platform those who speak against trans ideology.  Dissenters are bullied, their livelihoods are threatened, and some have been physically assaulted. 

Documented evidence of the negative impacts visited on women and girls in the name of transgender rights Is denounced as transphobic, bigoted ‘hate speech’

The tactics used by the trans rights lobby in Tasmania are no different to those used in many other countries.  See –  https://wwwfacebook.com/fairplayforwomen/

For examples of the abuse directed at women who argue the rights of female persons should not be subsumed by transgender rights see –  https://terfisaslur.com/

If you would like to attend contact –  womenspeaktasmania@gmail.com – or  see our Facebook page at –  https://wwwfacebook.com/womenspeaktas/


‘We are in a new era of witch burning, except that today, the fire is that of media and propaganda, with trans activists and their supporters suppressing any information that contradicts their goals and silencing their critics through oppressive tactics. Some of our contributors have been fired from teaching positions at universities; some have been blacklisted; others threatened with physical harm, rape, even death – all because they have questioned or challenged the idea that the cultural construct of gender should supplant biological sex. Others have been de-platformed as speakers at universities for expressing what should be a matter of common sense: that women, many of whom have been sexually assaulted by males, should have the right to shower, bathe, sleep, or organize free from the presence of males’.

    Who would ever have thought in this century that women would have to hold secret meetings to protect themselves from abuse, intimidation, threats and bullying … by men who feel like women, and their misogynist allies?

      It took over 100 years of blood, sweat and tears for 50% of the population to achieve the same rights that the other 50% had enjoyed for centuries.

      Now a tiny fraction of the population wants to erase what it means to be female. For biological men to subsume the sexual identities of females is to erase women altogether. That is misogyny at its very worst.
