KATHMANDU — Nepal’s Supreme Court has ordered the government to alter passports so that transgenders no longer have to describe themselves as male or female, a court spokesman said, a move welcomed by rights activists.
"A liberal NGO law is key to protecting the human rights community’s ability to operate freely. It is also key to empowering development organizations of the sort that Egypt desperately needs, as the economic crisis continues to inflict grave harm on the country’s poor. This is ultimately a political choice for the Egyptian president. He can still change course."
