Impact and engagement

Since 2018 we have researched and written about women’s sex-based rights and gender self-identification across different areas of public policy in the UK. Within this short period, we have established a strong record of research impact.

We have provided extensive written and oral evidence to the Scottish Parliament, for example on the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill and the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill. We have also provided written evidence to UK Parliament select committees, and other UK-wide consultations. Our work on the census and related research on data collection has been cited in the Scottish Parliament and has informed parliamentary questions and debate. We have commented extensively on women’s sex-based rights and gender self-identification policies in the media, including TV and radio interviews, and in articles in the national and specialist press. We have also published peer-reviewed papers in academic journals.
