Syracuse University College of Law – Anne Tamar-Mattis: Protecting the Civil Rights of Intersex Children

By on .

Anne Tamar-Mattis, Executive Director of Advocates for Informed Choice, visited the College of Law to discuss the legal and ethical issues of consent surrounding genital surgeries in children born with intersex conditions.

Editorial comment:

OII welcomes the work of Anne Tamar-Mattis, but believes that the use of pathologising language to describe intersex, such as DSDs or Disorders of Sex Development, mitigates against the ability of intersex people to gain equality and human rights.
