Campaigning for equality and recognition of human rights in sport - Episode 57
In this podcast Kristen Worley, athlete and, equality and human right campaigner, talks about her personal journey campaigning for the equality and human rights to be recognised in sport.
This journey led Kristen to take a landmark case to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario against the Cycling Canada, the Ontario Cycling Association and the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). The case challenged the "policies, guidelines, rules and processes surrounding XY female athletes, gender verification and therapeutic use of required hormones that are captured by anti-doping regulations."
In this podcast Kristen talks about her early years, research relating to XY females, athlete licensing systems and the limitations of such systems when athletes try to access competent bodies to hear disputes relating to human rights issues.
