Description

Dr Heather Brunskell-Evans is a feminist, academic, social theorist and philosopher. On this episode of the podcast, she discusses her latest book, Transgender Body Politics published by Spinifex Press. Transgender Body Politics analyses the political movement of transactivism in a broader sense, explaining the damage this has done to women. Heather outlines the tragic absurdity of having to argue that lesbians don’t have penises, that “women” is a far preferable word than “menstruators" and feminists not being allowed to speak respectfully about this issue with women who disagree. Her book compellingly makes the case that what she calls a "transgender empire" is a form of patriarchy women must stand shoulder-to-shoulder against. Heather co-edited two previous books on the subject of the transgendering of children, with Professor Michele Moore. Hear Heather talking about this earlier work here.
