Miriam Cates speaks up for children again
In the British Parliament, Miriam Cates, MP, denounced the content of some Relationship and Sexuality education in British schools. “Graphic lessons on oral sex, how to choke your partner safely, and 72 genders. This is what passes for relationships and sex education in British schools. Across the country children are being subjected to lessons that are age inappropriate, extreme, sexualizing and inaccurate; often using resources from unregulated organisations actively campaigning to undermine parents,” she said.
In response, Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, announced an urgent review into the issues raised.
Posie Parker defended by Australian Jewish Association
A group of neo-Nazis gate-crashed the “Let Women Speak” event hosted by Posie Parker (aka Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull) in Melbourne on 19 March. News reports and social media were very quick to label Posie as a Nazi sympathiser, but the Australian Jewish Association defended her against the unfounded accusations and supplied video footage that showed “These ugly thugs likely saw an opportunity to hijack the event for their own publicity.” Posie also unequivocally denounced the Nazi group, who have no connection with her. “I absolutely abhor anything to do with Nazis. It’s preposterous they even exist in 2023.” (NZ Herald, 21 March 2023)
Despite this, the Greens and others called for her to be denied entry to New Zealand and, when Immigration NZ confirmed there was no reason to keep her out, some Rainbow groups launched a judicial review on 23 March to overturn the decision. They claim that Posie is a threat to public safety, conveniently ignoring the fact that the three protesters who were arrested in Melbourne were all trans rights activists, not members of Posie’s audience.
Let Women Speak rallies (with or without Kellie-Jay) will be held in Auckland on 25 March (11am at Albert Park Band Rotunda) and Wellington on 26 March (2pm in Civic Square).
Norway joins the ranks of countries questioning ‘affirmation only’ transgender medicine
After a review, the Norwegian Healthcare Investigation Board stated that the current ‘gender affirming’ guidelines are not evidence-based and must be revised. Medicalised gender change for young people is “experimental”, relying on “insufficient” evidence, and should be confined to a formal research framework, according to Norway’s independent healthcare investigator.

Women’s Declaration International USA provides model child safe-guarding bill
In March 2022, WDI USA wrote a SAFE Act model bill to counteract states using well-intentioned but inappropriate language when writing legislation to ban puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones for minors. Several states, including Missouri, Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, South Carolina, and Tennessee have introduced bills to protect children, after being sent the model legislation. https://womensdeclarationusa.com/wdi-usa-introduces-safe-act-model-bill/
