On August 11th, 2016, Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and U.S. Department of Education (DOE) in order to challenge their recent redefinition of “sex” in Title IX to include “gender identity.” These kinds of changes have been taking place across North America — in many cases “sex” is simply replaced by “gender identity,” as though they are one in the same. But what does this mean for women’s rights? And why are governments pushing through these policy changes so quickly, without consulting with the public?
In this episode, I speak with Kara Dansky, WoLF spokeswoman and board member, about the lawsuit and what’s at stake. Kara is a lawyer, policy analyst, radical feminist, and the Founder and Managing Director of One Thousand Arms — a consulting firm committed to dismantling racism.
