OII Australia congratulates Caster Semenya on her Olympic medal

We don’t know if Caster Semenya is an intersex woman or not. Despite numerous statements in the local press, we are not aware of any official public disclosure regarding her status.

Nevertheless, she has faced salacious enquiry and humiliation as if she is. We salute her strength in the face of adversity, and congratulate her on her Olympic medal for the women’s 800m in London.
