European Parliament urges for the protection of sexual and reproductive health and rights in the EU for all
On Thursday 24 June 2021 the European Parliament adopted a resolution on the situation of sexual and reproductive health and rights in the EU, in the frame of women’s health. Beyond addressing key issues such as access to abortion and contraception, treating menstrual products as essential basic goods, and access to fertility treatments and birth-related health care for all, the document also highlights the specific obstacles that intersex people face and calls for the protection of their rights.
Global consultation on a common statistical framework on gender-related killings of women and girls (Femicide/Feminicide)
We believe that intersex inclusion in this questionnaire will allow for an even more accurate picture of femicide of women in all their diversity and thereby increase the accuracy of the questionnaire and, subsequently, the statistical data. As a side-effect, intersex inclusion will also draw attention to the still highly unreported violence experienced by intersex individuals.
Today, 17th of May 2021, OII Europe is proud to present the Intersex Good Practice Map 2020. The map features nine examples of good practices from the areas of policy action, data collection, monitoring, legal gender recognition, campaigning, anti-discrimination, legislation against hate speech/crime and funding training & counseling.

Available data shows that intersex persons, i.e., intersex women and men and non-binary intersex people, are among the most vulnerable groups of the population in regards to experiencing gender-based violence and domestic violence. In addition to the experiences of gender-based and domestic violence they share with other groups of the population, many intersex individuals experience, intersex genital mutilation (IGM), a harmful medical practice that is performed on them as result of their variation of sex characteristics, and which is a gender-based violence specific to intersex people.
