A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity
"Whipping Girl" offers a unique perspective on femininity, masculinity, and gender identity from the viewpoint of a biologist and trans woman. Author Julia Serano shares her powerful experiences, pre- and post-transition, to reveal societal attitudes towards trans women, gender, and sexuality. The book debunks misconceptions about transsexuality and exposes how cultural beliefs about femininity are rooted in fear, suspicion, and dismissiveness. Serano argues that modern feminists and transgender activists must embrace and empower femininity to promote gender equality.
