All female athletes in Virginia deserve fair competition in their respective sports. That’s why Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia supports SB723. The bill stipulates that participation in school sports in Virginia must be based on biological sex. The bill prohibits any such team or sport that is expressly designated for females from being open to students whose biological sex is male.

CWA of Virginia supports SB723 and will be present to testify in support of the bill because females suffer physical, mental, emotional, and financial harm when biological males participate in female sports. Examples of harm include:

  • Physical harm in contact sports as males structurally are stronger than females.
  • Mental and emotional harm when forced to share locker rooms and showers with biological males.
  • Financial harm occurs when competitions are unfairly lost, and as a result, it causes a loss of athletic scholarships and advancement to higher competitions such as the Olympics.

Fast Action Is Needed!
SB723 will be heard in the Education and Health Subcommittee – Public Education tomorrow, Thursday, February 1. It is critical that the subcommittee members hear from Virginians on this important issue. Contact the committee members below and urge them to SUPPORT SB723.

Join us in prayer: Father God, we pray for the passage of SB723 and that the eyes of the members of the Virginia General Assembly be opened to see the need to protect females in female sports from competing against biological males. In the precious name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
