New Zealand

In a move that will put Women at risk, the New Zealand minister of corrections announced that prisoners will be housed in the prison that fits their “gender” if the prisoner changed sex on their birth certificate. If the prisoner did not change the sex marker on the birth certificate, the prisoner can still apply to be moved. It does not appear that New Zealand requires removal of the male sex organ for a man to apply to have his birth certificate changed to female.
