Let’s read Katelyn Burns’s Vox piece, “The Rise of Anti-Trans ‘Radical’ Feminists, Explained.” As you read, consider the following questions:
- Burns begins with an anecdote about Aimee Stephens and her court case. How does this set the stage for the rest of the article? What do you think of the case?
- What do you think of Women’s Liberation Front’s (WoLF) claims about Stephens? What do you make of their understanding of sex and gender?
- Burns provides a history of TERFs. Why is this important to our understanding of this strain of feminism today?
- Why do you think supporting trans women is important to the feminist movement today?
