This chapter provides an overview of the issues discussed in Part III of this book, in particular how to enhance the lives of people with an intersex condition through legal means. This part also explores how the intersex movement can most effectively frame legal arguments and build alliances with other progressive social justice movements to help achieve its goals. Chapter 8 considers the primary goal of the intersex movement: to end medical practices that may cause irreparable physical harm and psychological trauma. Chapters 9 and 10 examine the potential for advancing the intersex movement's objectives by adopting legal strategies developed by other social justice movements that focus on ending discrimination based on sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability.
