“Mary” & Alberta Human Rights Commission (Canada)

An Edmonton mother filed a complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission after the Edmonton Catholic school district refused to let “Mary,” her transgender child, born a male, use the girls’ washroom.

The mother approached the school principal, the district principal, the superintendent, even the minister of education, arguing her child should be able to use the girls’ washroom. But the girls’ washroom remains off limits, with the boy instead escorted by another student to a gender-neutral washroom each time the need arises.

The family found an ally in Catholic school trustee Patricia Grell, who has publicly criticized the administration’s decision and has thus sided with men’s rights activists.
