One Response to Then and Now

  1. I am writing a blog on gender equality and recently wrote a piece asking for more information about what it means to be transgender and came across your blog.
    Just a question relating to this post – are you saying that it is an empowering thing that people are making the transition to be a woman, or that it is belittling what it means to be a woman as it is so easy that ‘anybody can be a woman’?
