Stand Up for Women

Rep. Halbrook and several of his House Republican colleagues stood up for women at the Capitol today, pledging support for legislation protecting women’s sports and personal spaces.

House Bill 5830, co-sponsored by Halbrook, clearly defines in law the terms “woman”, “man”, “male” and “female” to prevent judges or others from unilaterally redefining the word to mean “anyone identifying as a female”, and therefore, allowing biological males into women’s locker rooms, restrooms, dormitories, and other spaces.

“This legislation is about protecting women’s safety, privacy, and their athletic achievements,” Rep. Halbrook said.
