WLBC- Serano

June's WLBC pick will be WHIPPING GIRL by JULIA SERANO and we will be meeting FRIDAY JUNE 14th at 6:00 P.M.


About the book:

In Whipping Girl, biologist and trans activist Julia Serano shares her experiences and insights--both pre- and post-transition--to reveal the ways in which fear, suspicion, and dismissiveness toward femininity shape our attitudes toward trans women, as well as gender and sexuality as a whole.

Serano's well-honed arguments and pioneering advocacy stem from her ability to bridge the gap between the often-disparate biological and social perspectives on gender. In this provocative manifesto, she exposes how deep-rooted the cultural belief is that femininity is frivolous, weak, and passive.

In addition to debunking popular misconceptions about being transgender, Serano makes the case that today's feminists and transgender activists must work to embrace and empower femininity--in all of its wondrous forms.
