We are delighted to welcome Dr Ruth Pearce of University of Warwick to Wolverhampton to talk about Trans Feminism. This talk will look at some of the key issues and debates in trans feminism, highlighting areas of commonality and difference between the political struggles of trans women and cis women. It will also explore both historical and contemporary disputes over the place of trans issues (including challenges faced by trans men and non-binary people) within a women's movement.
