Gender reassignment: primarily refers to medical treatments including hormone therapies and surgical procedures that trans people undergo to align their sex with their gender, which treatments depend upon the birth sex. This process, however, also includes some or all of the following social and legal adjustments: coming out to family, friends and colleagues; dressing and acting according to one's gender; changing one's name and/or sex on legal documents; and meeting other legal or judicial procedures depending on national law. Following the European Court of Justice decision in P. v S. and Cornwall County Council (Case C-13/94), gender reassignment has been included within the scope of the ground of 'sex' in European Union law.
