  • Sky News published this video item, entitled “Woman who lost job over transgender views warns of ‘scary’ precedent” – below is their description.

    A woman who lost her job after expressing views that sex cannot be changed and transgender women are “not women” has told Sky News she does not regret anything she has done or said.

    Maya Forstater lost a test case at an employment tribunal in 2019, arguing that her belief should have legal protection.

    The judge ruled her views were “not worthy of respect in a democratic society”.

    Her appeal is being heard next week and will include an intervention from the Equalities and Human Rights Commission.
