Government: fewer official documents will note an individual’s sex
The government has decided to reduce the number of official documents and identity cards that require the registration of the holder’s sex. Research has shown that the use of such data is more prevalent than it needs to be. At the proposal of Minister of Justice Ard van der Steur and Minister of Education, Culture and Science Jet Bussemaker, the cabinet has agreed to send a letter to this effect to parliament.
