WHRC weekly webinars

This week's webinar:

Saturday 26 September 2020 - Conference on the Preservation of Sex as a Legal Category

3-4pm BST

This week's webinar will introduce the Declaration’s nine articles, as well as a litany of recent examples of harm caused to women and children by “gender-identity” legislation and ideology. Experts from a variety of nations will be on the panel. Along with Maureen O’Hara, a UK-based lawyer, the speakers include Kara Dansky, a US-based lawyer, and Eugenia Rodrigues, a WHRC member from Brazil. Rodrigues is a spokesperson for the Brazilian campaign “No Corpo Certo” (On the Right Body), which advocates for children’s safety by calling for an end to the practice of “sex-reassignment” on children.

Across the world, we are seeing an increase in efforts to replace sex with “gender identity” as a legally protected category,” said Kara Dansky, chair of the WHRC Committee on Law and Legislation and member of the WHRC-USA Interim Steering Committee. “The purpose of this webinar is to inform policymakers on the repercussions of their votes for the rights, privacy, and safety of women and girls.”
