Event Description: 

Despite a large body of research demonstrating significant variability in biological sex, sexual development and bodies, common understandings of human biology and sexual development are dominated by a binary model. In this model, people are assumed to display unambiguous and congruent characteristics that are either female or male. Although changing, this binary model has guided our understanding of sexual and reproductive health and rights. Join us to find out more about Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for Intersex People and hear why Intersex issues are important and necessary to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights – especially in crisis settings.
