gender recognition

the social and legal process of recognising an individual’s gender identity, for example, the legal ability to change one’s gender on legal documents, like a passport.

This may be the ability to be recognised as male or female when assigned female at birth or assigned male at birth respectively, such as with transgender individuals, or for nonbinary individuals to be recognised as neither male or female if desired.

The term may also relate to the desire of some individuals with intersex variations to be legally recognised as not being either male or female in their sex.
