WHAT
WE DO

PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.

These are the areas we are active in. This can mean meetings, letter writing, information requests, advertising, increasing awareness, official submissions to government processes and pretty much anything else we can come up with! We provide advocacy when sex matters. Contact us if you would like to get involved - there is a form at the bottom of every page or you can get hold of us via social media.

KEEPING SINGLE-SEX
SPACES

Women and girls have the right to single-sex services, but males who self-ID as women are being given access to these services as well. Service providers are allowed to provide a single-sex service irrespective of how a man self-IDs, or what sex is recorded on a (potentially changed) birth certificate.

(BOR Act S 19¹, and part 2 HRA in particular ss 46² and 73ᶟ, and BDMRR clause 79(2)

KEEPING
WOMEN IN OUR LANGUAGE

The words ‘women’ and ‘girls’ are being replaced with undignified terminology throughout New Zealand’s public service and government organisations, as well as in some private sectors. We can now be referred to as “people who menstruate”, “birthing parent”, and “vagina owners”. Men and boys are still called men and boys. This dehumanising of women and girls must stop, and it begins with language.

KEEPING POLICY & LEGISLATION HONEST

Organisations are now making policies which give men access to places which were previously female-only if they self-ID as women. Cloaked terminology such as “all women” are used to incorporate these self-ID men, and that is then imposed on the public and/or staff. This is confusing and potentially unsafe for women and girls

KEEPING GENDER IDEOLOGY OUT OF SCHOOLS

Under misguided good intentions, New Zealand schools are implementing gender-identity ideology into their curriculum, supported by the Ministry of Education’s Relationships and Sexuality Education guidelines. We don't believe it’s appropriate to teach impressionable children that they may be the opposite sex if they exhibit gender nonconforming behaviour.

KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE FROM TRANSITIONING

If allowed to go through puberty, 80% of gender-questioning children will accept their sex. Puberty is when we mature physically, emotionally, and mentally, and halting this maturation with puberty blockers so a child can ‘pass’ more effectively as the opposite sex when they’re an adult is a questionable  and experimental practice.

KEEPING WOMEN'S PRISONS FOR WOMEN

No man should be housed in a women’s prison no matter how he self-IDs. Vulnerable male prisoners who self-ID as women should have other arrangements made for them, and not be housed with vulnerable women. Women in prison have no escape from a male who is locked up with them.

KEEPING THE MEANING OF THE WORD LESBIAN

Lesbians are same-sex attracted to females. We do not believe that a man can be a lesbian or that it is bigoted or transphobic for lesbians to exclude men from their prospective dating pool. We support LAVA NZ

KEEPING WOMEN'S SPORT FOR WOMEN

Women are not a sub-category of men with lower testosterone. We are our own unique sex which no man can emulate. Male puberty gives men a physical advantage that women can’t match, when comparing like for like, irrespective of testosterone suppression. We support Save Women’s Sports Australasia and we want to keep sport fair for women and girls.
