Background Materials on Anti-Trans “Bathroom Bills”

Many states and local jurisdictions are still considering banning transgender people from public bathrooms as a “sexual assault prevention” measure. This two-page list of web links collects most of what you might want to know, from general overviews of the issue and lists of where such bills are pending to studies of sexual predators and bathrooms to the negative consequences we’ve seen where “bathroom bills” have been enacted. Also includes links exploring the history of using bathroom and sexual predator fears to oppose other civil rights efforts, the history of sex-segregated bathrooms, and selected public education videos.
