Approximately 80,000 people living in the Netherlands were born with a sexual anatomy that does not fully correspond with the norms for male and female bodies. During the 1950s it became standard medical practice to protect children with a gender variation from social problems by assigning them a gender and subsequently keeping it a secret. Margriet van Heesch investigates what it was like for these children and how, as adults, they now look back on the medical interventions and secrecy.
