Now even the word ‘maternity’ is facing a ban at Britain’s ‘wokest’ university after diversity chiefs said the term was now ‘problematic’ and ‘exclusionary’

  • Staff from Bristol University objected against the campus use of the term “maternity”.  
  • The pool’s on-site swimming area was also open to men who identify themselves as women 
  • Transgender activists are accused of a hate campaign for two years against a doctoral student 
  • Raquel Rosario Sanchez from Bristol, was accused of being transphobic and was investigated by the university. The university claimed that she is a biological woman who can bear children. 

Britain’s ‘wokest’ university is facing claims that its staff objected to the use of the word ‘maternity’ and allowed men identifying as women to use its campus swimming pool.

As Raquel Rosario Sanchez, a PhD student at Bristol University was preparing for a pending sex discrimination case and negligence against her institution, the allegations were made.

Its bosses, she claims, failed to address transgender activists and subjected her two years to hate campaigns for attending feminist meetings opposed to women identifying as females in spaces that are exclusively for women.

Ms Rosario-Sanchez said she had been contacted by several female academics, including one responsible for writing staff policy related to families who claims that despite removing the words ‘woman’, ‘she’ and ‘her’ from the maternity policy, she was told by diversity chiefs that the term ‘maternity’ was now ‘problematic’ and ‘exclusionary’.

The whistleblower asserted that when she pointed out that only a biological woman can give birth, she was reported to human resources bosses for being ‘transphobic’, investigated by the university and ordered to apologise.

Ms Rosario Sanchez received a complaint from a female lecturer that Bristol denied her request for men to use the male changing room at the swimming pool.

The woman said she had written to the university’s director of sport to say that she and her eight-year-old daughter had come across men who were male-bodied and ‘wearing men’s clothes’ in the changing area.

The University of Bristol is is facing claims that its staff objected to the use of the word ‘maternity’ and allowed men identifying as women to use its campus swimming pool

The University of Bristol is is facing claims that its staff objected to the use of the word ‘maternity’ and allowed men identifying as women to use its campus swimming pool 

She claimed that when she spoke to the pool staff, she was told that ‘people could use the changing room they were comfortable in, whatever their sex’.

According to her, the director for sport supported this idea.

Ms Rosario-Sanchez says her ordeal began when she agreed to chair a meeting for the feminist organisation Woman’s Place UK (WPUK) in February 2018.

Trans activists have branded WPUK a ‘hate group’ for opposing Government proposals to allow people to ‘self-identify’ as the opposite sex.

Following her bullying complaint, the university initiated a hearing against one trans activist, but it was dropped. Ms Rosario Sanchez decided to pursue legal action. 

Raquel Rosario-Sanchez claims its bosses failed to tackle transgender activists who subjected her to a two-year hate campaign for attending feminist meetings that opposed allowing men who identify as women into female-only spaces such as toilets and domestic violence refuges

Raquel Rosario Sanchez claims her bosses did not tackle transgender activist who made Raquel go through a hate campaign over two years for going to feminist meetings opposed to women identifying as females.

Last night, she told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I always thought my case was an anomaly, but then I started to be contacted by more women saying they are being targeted by trans activists or they are being punished by the university for standing up for their feminist views.’

Dr Nicola Williams, spokeswoman for Fair Play For Women, which campaigns for the rights of women and girls, said: ‘This is surely the wokest university in Britain.’

A university spokesman said: ‘Ms Rosario-Sanchez has chosen to take legal action. Given this, we will not comment further.’

Rosario Sanchez launched an online campaign to raise funds for her case. More information can be found here.
