Court Issues Landmark Transgender Rights Ruling in Zimbabwe

Ricky Nathanson, a transgender woman has successfully sued police for unlawful arrest, in a ruling seen as highly progressive, in what is still a very conservative society. Nathanson was arrested and detained for two days in 2014 and charged with criminal nuisance after she used a women's toilet at a hotel in Bulawayo, the country's second-largest city.
