The Transfeminist Manifesto Revisited: 20 Years Later
Tuesday, March 13, 4 – 5:20 pm
McKenzie Hall 229
Activist and writer Emi Koyama originally wrote “The Transfeminist Manifesto” and self-published in 1999 before it was anthologized several years later. With the rapid expansion of trans rights movements and drastic changes in languages and ideas within trans communities, the article is clearly dated, historical piece. In this presentation, Emi revisits the Manifesto after almost two decades, commenting on how her thinking has evolved in that time and what importance trans feminisms continue to have in today’s feminisms and culture.
