“Respect and Equality – Transsexual and Transgender Rights” – Stephen Whittle 2002

This book argues that current law does not adequately provide for transgender people and calls for respect and equality before the law. Theoretical discussions of sex, sexuality, gender and law, and an extensive range of primary and secondary research materials, are combined to provide an insightful analysis into the inadequacies of current law. The book combines analysis of up-to-date national and international statute and case law with practical examples of successful affidavits. It takes account of the most recent legal developments in the field, including: Goodwin and I v UK Government, European Court of Human Rights B v NHS Pension Trusts, European Court of Justice Bellinger v Bellinger, and House of Lords A v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police, Court of Appeal.

Cost: £25
