Friday March 9, 2018, a group of women, angered at some anti transgender social media campaigning which was being used by those involved as yet another stick to beat Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn got together to create #Women4Corbyn.
It is an online based focus group which in a few days has received a great deal of support.
Unlike Mayday4Women our group members support transgender inclusivity in the party, Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.
We all want and need a Jeremy Corbyn led government and as soon as possible.
We are a mix of age groups from around the country but with one message - we are staying put.
Mayday4Women has scheduled "mass resignations" from the party and involved anti-Corbyn outlets such as the Daily Mail to publicise their cause.
They seem oblivious to the hardship felt by many by the policies of the current Tory government. Their planned action will act as another political distraction enabling the Tory Party to go happily on its merry way.
Little wonder their Twitter account has some Tory groups following them.
As a new group we do not have the same media presence or contacts and we know that Corbyn bashing is infinitely preferable to many mainstream media outlets.
We are just ordinary women from ordinary backgrounds who support politics #ForTheManyNotTheFew.
If needed an internal debate and following Labour Party procedures is the best way forward on trans inclusivity.
Instead Mayday4Women members are planning to publicly resign from the Party this week if the NEC agrees to a motion that will allow transgender women to be on all women shortlists.
However the action of Mayday4Women needed a direct reaction and this is it.
And above all #VoteLabour #ForTheManyNotTheFew

MAYDAY 4 WOMEN @mayday4women Mar 11 As for the #Women4Corbyn response, at least attempt to address the concerns of women. Pretending sex is a self-defined abstract quality is anti-materialist hogwash. So telling how anti-feminists make everything about loyalty to a man. Only through men are you virtuous, women!
MAYDAY 4 WOMEN @mayday4women Mar 11
We're in The Mail on Sunday! If you want to resign in response to self-definition onto AWS, don't do it alone, join together with other women to make a collective statement.
MayDay for women describe themselves as an underground resistance, standing up for the rights of women and children.
They are allegedly Labour party supporters who feign outrage at the idea that transgender women are allowed the same platform in the Labour Party as people assigned female at birth.
Desperate to see misogyny in the most harmless of situations, these people are trying to bring down Corbyn’s Labour by claiming outrage that Labour are planning to allow transgender people onto all women short lists.
Emboldened by the onslaught against LGBT people in the right wing press, this sinister and nasty group are trying their best to create a hostile environment for those in the Labour Party who support a person’s right to choose the sex with which they feel most comfortable.
This group of seemingly transphobic bigots are trying hard to get their hatred sanctioned by organising mass resignations from the Labour Party in protest at what they see as sullying their gender purity.
They are the worst kind of feminists who set the cause for female equality back a hundred years.
Owen Jones reported that in today’s Britain, eight in 10 trans young people report self-harm and nearly half have tried to kill themselves.
How is a minority so afflicted with transphobia-induced mental distress supposed to feel with this relentless campaign against them?
Note that 64% of trans school pupils have been bullied for their gender identity; and 38% of trans people have suffered physical intimidation.
True feminism embraces all creeds colours and persuasions, and that includes those souls who wish to identify themselves as female MayDay isnt motivated by sisterly love or women’s rights, they have a thinly veiled agenda which is to score points against the democratically elected leader of the Labour Party, and it doesn’t take a genius to work out who is behind it.
#Women4Corbyn is a transinclusive group of female Labour Party members showing continued support for Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Party leader.
