Legal Gender

From Sunday Morning, 8:15 am on 10 July 2022

Imagine a society where sex is not recorded on birth certificates, children are not socialised into gender, and people can live and express themselves without sex or gender status. A four year publicly funded research project on 'gender and the law' in the UK recently published its findings. 

It's titled: "Abolishing legal sex status: The challenge and consequences of gender-related law reform" The research was led by Davina Cooper, a Research Professor in Law and Political Theory at King's College London. She explains to Karyn Hay what legal gender means. https://futureoflegalgender.kcl.ac.uk/
