WHY DO WE NEED TO PETITION THE IOC? 

In 2015 the International Olympic Committee (IOC) relaxed the eligibility criteria for male-born transgender people to compete in female sport, only requiring a transwoman to reduce Testosterone to 10nM for at least 12 months in order to compete as a 'self-identifying' woman. This is still 6 to 12 times the average female (0.8nM), and completely ignores the physical advantages in speed, height, stamina and strength that a male-born athlete will have.

 

Allowing transgender athletes to compete in female competitions is unfair, plain and simple.
Please sign the petition below calling on the IOC to review its unjust policy

Save Womens Sport Australasia is part of an international coalition of women's organisations, athletes, and supporters
of women in sport who assert that male athletes should not compete in female sports.
