The form of backlash

Rival demonstrations held in Dublin on September 16th opposed a group called Let Women Speak and a counter rally involving trans rights activists. The latter were chanting “trans rights are human rights”. While campaigners of Let Women Speak claimed “transitioning children is profound abuse”. UK-founded Let Women Speak describes itself as a grassroots gender critical, radical feminism group upholding women’s rights to sex-segregated spaces. Academic and author Helen Joyce said: “They (the counter-protesters) don’t understand that women’s rights depend upon women being able to set boundaries that exclude all men however they identify”.
