Future of Legal Gender - Research

Source By: Future of Legal Gender

The Future of Legal Gender project is a three-year research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and based at King's College London  It is led by Professor Davina Cooper.   The project addresses questions of diversity and equality, through the lens of legal reform and gender.  It is an exploratory, academic project; not an advocacy project. 

One strand of our project concerns the equality implications for minority religious communities of changing the ways gender/ sex is regulated and recognised legally. We are interested in the views of different cultural and religious communities as to the key challenges and difficulties, but also the possibilities that law reform might offer in order to inform our research.  We would greatly value speaking with you as part of this research, and would also appreciate any contact you might be able to help establish with minority religious groups in your local authority area, who might be willing to speak with us, perhaps by way of informal meeting or group discussion, if they would prefer this format to a formal interview.  

We appreciate that gender is, for some, a sensitive or difficult issue. It is also one that some communities are just starting to reconsider and discuss in light of wider debates, including about transgender-related law reform. Our aim, at this stage of the research, is to properly understand different concerns and issues, so our research and analyses are conducted thoughtfully and with depth.  

All interviews are confidential, and all data from the interviews (or group discussions) is anonymous, both as to the individual and the organisation. We are committed to ensuring our use of material from interviews is done responsibly and ethically, so it doesn't contribute to political tensions.  

Please feel free to ring me if you would like to discuss this further, although it would be easiest to arrange a convenient time to call, as I am in and out of the office a lot over the next few weeks.   My email address is  We would also would be very happy to have an introductory meeting with any religious groups who might be interested, to discuss the project and our research, if that would help them decide whether you would be willing to participate.  This could be in September, if it is easier with the summer holiday season upon us.
