A California mother recently secured a landmark parental rights victory, reaching a settlement agreement with a Monterey County school district over allegations that her daughter was “socially transitioned” without her consent, Fox News Digital reported Tuesday.

Jessica Konen, represented by the Center for American Liberty, filed a lawsuit against Spreckels Union School District in 2021 after she claimed a school within the district socially transitioned her 11-year-old daughter, Alicia, without her knowledge or consent.

Konen's daughter was told by school staff at Buena Vista Middle School that she might feel upset because she did not know who she “truly was inside,” according to the lawsuit. School officials allegedly allowed Alicia to use the boys' bathroom and be addressed by male pronouns.
