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

  • Meghan Murphy spoke to NewsHub Nation’s Simon Shepherd on Friday about the conflict between gender identity legislation and women’s rights.
  • The UK tribunal considering Maya Forstater’s case for wrongful dismissal has heard from Kristina Harrison, a trans-identified male, that even people who identify as transgender are afraid to use the biological terms “male” and “female” accurately, fearing persecution and backlash on social media.
  • Around 2,500 police have been deployed around the Sabarimala temple in India, out of fear that there may be violence over women’s demands to enter, following a Supreme Court decision to overturn the ban on female worshippers between the ages of 10 and 50.
  • South African women are demanding that the death penalty be implemented for severe sexual violence, after a 19-year-old woman was raped and murdered at a post office.
