Defined

The EHRC defines gender reassignment as the process of transitioning from one gender to another. The Equality Act (2010) states that a person has the protected characteristic of gender reassignment if the person is proposing to undergo, is undergoing or has undergone a process (or part of a process) for the purpose of reassigning the person's sex by changing physiological or other attributes of sex.
