We are raising money to fight criminal and civil cases against my wife, which we consider to be unfair and unjust.

My wife, Kate, initially became interested in the debate surrounding the proposed self-ID for trans people a couple of years ago and how they may affect the safety of women in women's only spaces. She has expressed several contentious opinions and had many arguments/debates online, resulting in her original arrest and now charges under Section 127 (2) (a) of the Communications act 2003 brought against her - see linked Mail articles

Regardless of your stance on the matter (my wife and I don't agree on the subject), this is an issue of free speech; given the well documented controversy surrounding section 127 (see link ), for a Mother who has trained for 5 years to better her and her family's life to have her future career prospects destroyed because of opinions expressed online is clearly a misuse of the law. Sadly. as my wife has been a student for some time, we have no funds to fight these charges, and are looking for donations to assist.
