What’s Current: UK NUS officer under investigation over allegations of public indecency

What’s Current is Feminist Current’s daily news roundup.

  • Jess Bradley, a trans-identified male serving as Britain’s first transgender student officer for the National Union of Students (NUS), has been suspended from his role over an investigation into whether he posted pictures of himself engaging in lewd acts in public places, after screenshots were shared from an anonymous Twitter account. Bradley, a frequently cited proponent of instituting self-ID for men wanting access to women’s spaces, is represented by the prestigious law firm, Carter Ruck, which says releasing his name is an invasion of Bradley’s privacy.
  • A homeless woman in the UK says she has been attacked and robbed on the streets around 30 times, as well as sexually assaulted in mixed-sex shelter accommodations.
  • Cricket Australia has sacked a Tasmanian woman for campaigning on social media for abortion access, after the only abortion clinic in Tasmania was closed.
  • Three women were non-fatally stabbed at a 40,000-strong abortion rights march in Chile by hooded attackers. Several men are in custody.
  • The Welsh government has identified 150 children — mostly girls — between the ages of two and 17, who were trafficked into the country for slavery and sexual exploitation over the last 18 months.
