Maya was fired from The Center for Global Development in London because she expressed her gender-critical views on Twitter. She is crowd-funding to pay for legal representation in the hope of establishing that gender critical beliefs are protected under the Equality Act 2010. At a time when people are in fear of losing their jobs due to trans cult bullying, this would establish beyond doubt our rights to express our legitimate, scientifically-supported views and have a massive postive impact on people’s confidence to do so.

Andrew Gilligan covers the story in The Times but it’s well worth reading the long story, written by Maya herself: I lost my job for speaking up about women’s rights.
