Newly revised and updated, this classic manifesto is "a foundational text for anyone hoping to understand transgender politics and culture in the U.S. today" (NPR)

*Named as one of 100 Best Non-Fiction Books of All Time by Ms. Magazine*

A landmark of trans and feminist nonfiction, Whipping Girl is Julia Serano's indispensable account of what it means to be a transgender woman in a world that consistently derides and belittles anything feminine.

In a series of incisive essays, Serano draws on gender theory, her training as a biologist, her career in queer activism, and her own experiences before and after her gender transition to examine the deep connections between sexism and transphobia. She coins the term transmisogyny to describe the specific discrimination trans women face-and she shows how, in a world where masculinity is seen as unquestionably superior to femininity, transgender women's very existence becomes a threat to the established gender hierarchy.

Now updated with a new afterword on the contemporary anti-trans backlash, Whipping Girl makes the case that today's feminists and transgender activists must work to embrace and empower femininity-in all of its wondrous forms-and to make the world safe and just for people of all genders and sexualities.
