The Centre for Civil Society based within the School of Built Environment and Development studies invite you to the seminar The Social Inclusion/Exclusion of Intersex South Africans by Justine van Rooyen.

Date: Wednesday 12 August 2015
Time: 12h30 – 14h00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room 602, 6th Floor, MTB Tower, Howard College, University of KwaZulu-Natal

The social inclusion or exclusion of intersex South African residents is poorly understood. A new survey considers the knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of people living in rural areas toward intersex persons. Nearly 3000 people were interviewed in six provinces. Equal rights advocacy and the generation of consciousness shifts about intersex people will be a challenge in the years ahead for civil society.

Justine van Rooyen is based at the AIDS Foundation of South Africa, and recently completed her masters thesis on intersex South African experiences.
