Cosmetics retailer Lush has come under fire after it donated £3,000 ($4,000) to an anti-trans group.




The recipient, A Woman's Place UK, has been accused of anti-trans behavior.




Four of the group's five core demands focus on the idea that trans rights could infringe women's rights, activists say.




Activists have called for shoppers to boycott Lush, and its North American arm quickly distanced itself from the decision.




"We do not believe that trans rights are a threat to women's rights," Lush said, and maintained that it remains a loyal advocate of LGBTQ+ rights.
