Bathroom Access and Safety

program date: 
Mon, 04/20/2009

While there are few things more primal than the need to use the bathroom many trans and gender variant individuals find that answering natures call is needlessly complicated and often downright dangerous. Few gendered spaces are as vehemently patrolled and the penality for violating gender norms can range from ejection to arrest to bodily harm. Bathroom acess isn't just a trans issue, as many single parents discover when faced with signs baring them from from accompanying non-same-sex children into public restrooms or dressing rooms.

Gender Blender on 03/17/09

Air date: 
Tue, 03/17/2009 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Short Description: 
How gender impacts pay and other employment related issues.

Many Americans would be surprised to learn that women make less money than men for doing the same jobs.  For those who accept this disparity, a common defense is the argument that men--by the nature of their upbringings--have additional skills that are denied those growing up girls.  However, a 2008 study--referenced in the New York Times and Time magazine-- debunks this contention by illustrating that transgender individuals who were raised male but transition to female on average lose one third of their salary; even when they stay in the exact same job or field.
