A Labour MP has received a barrage criticism from anti-transgender feminist campaigners after defending the right of transgender women be stand on all-women shortlists.

The UK’s Labour Party uses women-only shortlists in a number of constituencies in a bid to boost the number of female MPs in Parliament.

Under the system, some local Labour Parties are required to pick a Parliamentary candidate from a list exclusively comprised of women.

[…] Transgender women are already permitted to stand on all-women shortlists.

[…] But trans women are already competing for seats under long-standing Labour policy.

PinkNews spoke to a transgender Labour activist, Dr Heather Peto, who has made it onto an All Women Shortlist for selection in the Labour target seat of Rushcliffe at the next General Election.
