Maggie Chapman is a Scottish Green Member of the Scottish Parliament.


She believes 8 year olds should be able to legally change their gender.[1]

On 10 May 2023, Chapman was sanctioned by the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee. They found that the North East Scotland MSP did not share a “declarable financial interest” as the former chief operating officer (COO) of Edinburgh Rape Crisis when she questioned the chief executive officer (CEO) of Rape Crisis Scotland at an evidence session on the Gender Recognition Reform Bill. During the Holyrood Equalities, Human Rights and Civil Justice Committee meeting in May 2022, Chapman spoke about the work of Rape Crisis Scotland, saying it has been “trans-inclusive for 15 years” – but she failed to mention her previous work with the Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre.[2]
