Traditional Paper Presentation

Research Project Abstract

This paper will address transgender individuals’ rights in public spaces, particularly in public schools. By examining Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, this paper suggests that public schools should favor the protection of gender autonomy to ensure safe and equal access to facilities for all students. As seen through the case of G.G. v Gloucester County School Board, this paper demonstrates how public schools have increasingly been vulnerable to law suits due to unclear federal policy and minimal legal precedence.
