Hermaphrodites with Attitude

This collection contains 13 issues of Hermaphrodites with Attitude, the newsletter of the Intersex Society of North America (ISNA). Hermaphrodites with Attitude was published semi-periodically from 1995-2005 and eventually began to refer to itself as ISNA News in 2001. The mission of the newsletter and ISNA more generally was to build "a world free of shame, secrecy, and unwanted genital surgeries for people born with atypical sex anatomies." This collection explores issues surrounding surgical normalization, gender assignment, biological diversity, and autonomy.
