By now, most of you have heard about this fantastic new anthology.
I’m honored to be an author in this book, which Germaine Greer was so kind to write the foreword for, alongside authors I admire like Sheila Jeffreys, Cathy Brennan, Julia Long and others. My story is written under the name of Sharon Thrace (not my real name).
According to my social media and blogosphere, many of you have written for it, pre-ordered it or donated to its cause and I greatly appreciate that.
Per the website:
Female Erasure: What You Need To Know About Gender Politics’ War on Women, the Female Sex and Human Rights
Forword by Germaine Greer
Edited by Ruth Barrett
“This anthology brings together voices of more than forty six contributors celebrating female embodiment while exploring deeper issues of misogyny, violence and sexism in gender identity politics today, demonstrating the intentional silencing and erasure of living female realities.
These perspectives come at a time when gender politics and profits from an emerging medical transgenderism industry for children, teens, and adults inhibits our ability to have meaningful discussions about sex, gender, changing laws that have provided sex-based protections for women and girls, and the re-framing of language that erases females as a distinct biological class.
Through researched articles, essays, first-hand experience, story telling, and verse, these voices are needed to ignite the national conversation about the politics of gender-identity as a backlash to feminist goals of liberation from gender stereotypes, oppression and sexual violence.”
The current target date is September.
