9781894549615: Trans/forming Feminisms: Transfeminist Voices Speak Out

Though gender analysis is the very foundation of feminism, the more complex intersections of transsexuality are often overlooked, and feminism has not always welcomed the participation of trans activists and thinkers.

In this groundbreaking anthology, feminist scholar and trans ally Krista Scott-Dixon takes on the challenge of moving us towards a more inclusive transfeminist politics. The 30 essays reflect academic, personal and political perspectives of contributors from Canada, the U.S. and Europe. These include well-known activists and scholars in the field as well as new and fresh voices.

The book is divided into five sections to highlight the intersections between trans and feminist ideas. "Narratives and Voices" builds on the feminist idea of consciousness-raising, speaking from individual experiences and questions of how to represent oneself in language. "Identities and Alliances" takes up questions of how identities are produced, maintained and reproduced, and how diverse identities can work collectively. "Inclusion and Exclusion" examines the notion of "safe spaces" and "women-only spaces" in the context of trans challenges such as the Kimberly Nixon v. Vancouver Rape Relief Society case and the entrance policies of the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival. "Shelter and Violence" explores the service-provision policies of shelters, as well as the sex-gender system that supports transphobic abuse. The final section, "Teaching and Transgressing, " looks at pedagogy and classroom practice, critiquing tools of the trade and identifying ways that instructors can bring critical gender studies into the classrooms. The section introductions contextualize the discussion and identify key issues. The collection concludes with suggestions for future research and activism

Trans/forming Feminisms is an invaluable collection for social justice activists, progressive academics and students, and readers interested in tackling these compelling and challenging issues.

Review:

Feminists have long been struggling with how to best relate to transgendered people - and there have been some rough spots along the way. If you want to better understand some of the practical challenges and tough questions that transgendered people pose for feminist theory, you'll find Trans/forming Feminisms provides varied perspectives and valuable insights." - Aaron H. Devor, Dean, University of Victoria
