Aljazeera interviews Viloria on sports policies for intersex female athletes

 

Our E.D. Hida Viloria is on Aljazeera’s The Stream today, speaking with scholars Payoshni Mitra, PhD, and Katrina Karkazis, PhD, author of Fixing Sex, about how sporting regulations for intersex women, specifically those with hyperandrogegism (high natural testosterone levels), are discriminatory, as witnessed in the recent case of India’s Dutee Chand. Viloria has lobbied extensively against these policies since they were first proposed in early 2010, and OII-USA stands behind Dutee Chand, and in support of ALL women’s right to participate in sports without having to undergo medically unnecessary, “normalizing” treatments.
