“The material reality of sex informs women’s lives and shapes our experiences. The replacement of biological sex with ‘gender identity’ will have significant implications for women across all areas of life, including law, medicine, science, sport, data collection, relationships, and safeguarding. To deny sex is to erase women as a meaningful class. Sex matters because women matter.”
