Will the Scottish trans row go to court?

15 min listen

In This Episode

Westminster and Holyrood are going head to head on Scotland’s newly passed Gender Recognition Bill. Last night, the UK government blocked the legislation from Edinburgh, citing that the powers it gives – requiring those identifying as a different gender to only live in that gender for three months, and reducing the age of self-identification to 16 – would contravene the UK’s Equality Act. In the end, it may be the courts that decide. Cindy Yu talks to Katy Balls and Kate Andrews.
