JK Rowling has claimed that every woman who has been “harassed, silenced or bullied” for gender critical views is safer after a campaigner won an employment tribunal.

The Harry Potter author made the comments after Maya Forstater, a 47-year-old tax expert, who lost her job at a think tank after claiming people cannot change their biological sex, won three fresh claims in an employment tribunal following an appeal.
