Transgressive: A Trans Woman on Gender, Feminism, and Politics

by Rachel Anne Williams - £14.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781785926471 | ISBN 10: 1785926470

A provocative exploration of issues relating to gender, feminism, philosophy and trans-identities, written from a trans-feminist perspective. It empowers readers, raises awareness and breaks down misconceptions about trans identities, covering issues such as women's male privilege, radical feminism and being trans enough.
 
How do I know I am trans? Is trans feminism real feminism? What is there to say about trans women's male privilege?
 
This collection of insightful, pithy and passionately argued think pieces from a trans-feminist perspective explores issues surrounding gender, feminism and philosophy and challenges misconceptions about trans identities. The book confronts contentious debates in gender studies to alleviate ongoing tension between feminism and trans women. Split into six sections, this collection covers wider issues, as well as autobiographical experiences, designed to stimulate the reader and encourage them to actively participate.
