Summary

Edit

The same number of senators voted for and against the motion, which means it failed. It was introduced by WA Senator Rachel Siewert (Greens).

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i.) 8 November 2019 was Intersex Day of Solidarity, and

(ii.) Intersex Day of Solidarity is marked internationally, and is a chance to highlight issues facing intersex people; and

(b) calls on all parliamentarians to:

(i.) commit to learning more about the lives and experiences of people with variations of sex characteristics, and

(ii.) agree to read and consider affirming the Darlington Statement, a joint consensus statement by organisations and independent advocates which sets out the priorities of the intersex human rights movement in Australia and New Zealand.
