Internationally renowned transgender rights activist and New York-based journalist Janet Mock has been in high demand as a speaker in recent times, thanks to her bestselling memoir Redefining Realness and Surpassing Certainty and her social media project #GirlsLikeUs, which aims to empower trans women. At her talk at the Melbourne Writers Festival, she will reflect on the power of storytelling as a catalyst for social change, and the history of trans women in LGBTQIA and feminist history.
