INVITATION: TODAY: RENEW Europe online webinar: Forced sterilization of trans persons; a tortuous practice standing in the way of self-determination
The Renew Europe group would like to invite you to :
a webinar on “Forced sterilization of trans persons; a tortuous practice standing in the way of self-determination”
taking place between 3:00pm - 4:30pm
TODAY, 10th December.
The new LGBTIQ Strategy aims to put in place accessible gender legal recognition legislation and procedures based on the principle of self-determination and clearly target harmful practices, such as forced medicalisation of trans people. However, six EU countries continue to demand sterilization as a requirement for gender reassignment.
This webinar will explore the still prevailing practice of forced sterilization on trans persons in the EU and the way forward to ensuring self-determination.
