Humza Yousaf has confirmed that trans women will be protected under new misogyny laws in Scotland. The Scottish government are set to introduce a bill to address prejudice and violence against women and girls – which rightly includes trans women and girls – before the current parliamentary term ends in 2026. Speaking to BBC’s Good Morning Scotland, he said: “Women and girls will be protected, and trans women will be protected as well, as they will often be the ones who suffer threats of rape or threats of disfigurement for example.
