Introduction
My research focuses on the human rights of girls and women in sport. It focuses on domestic and international sport policy. At the moment I am working on the human rights deficits for females manifest in eligibility criteria which privilege transgender inclusion over female inclusion. I argue fairness and inclusion are aligned rather than 'in tension' and that the human rights of females in sport depend on fair eligibility criteria which acknowledge human sexual dimorphism.

Article
The inclusion of girls and women in sport at all levels depends on single sex categories for most sports from puberty onwards, because of the biological differences between the sexes.

However, for feminist philosophical political and citizenship theorists the project is rather that as persons, girls and women have equal moral standing in the political and social structures of society...

Presentation
One of the necessary conditions for personhood is the capacity to act as a moral agent. Historically the perceived limited capacity for moral reasoning of women has been one of the arguments excluding them from full status as a persons and citizens.
