Maya Forstater: Woman wins tribunal appeal over transgender tweets – BBC News

A woman who lost her job after saying that people cannot change their biological sex has won an appeal against an employment tribunal.

Maya Forstater, 47, did not have her contract renewed after posting tweets on gender recognition.

She lost her original case at a tribunal in 2019, but a High Court judge ruled her “gender-critical” beliefs fell under the Equalities Act.

The appeal said the tribunal had erred in law and another should take place.

Maya Forstater won her case because the Employment Appeal Tribunal concluded that her belief that biological sex is real, important and immutable met the legal test of a genuine and important philosophical position that is protected under the UK’s equality laws.
