"Transgender Rights packs a surprising amount of information into a small space. Offering spare, tightly executed essays, this slim volume nonetheless succeeds in creating a spectacular, well-researched compendium of the transgender movement." -Law Library Journal Over the past three decades, the transgender movement has gained visibility and achieved significant victories. Discrimination has been prohibited in several states, dozens of municipalities, and more than two hundred private companies, while hate crime laws in eight states have been amended to include gender identity. Yet prejudice and violence against transgender people remain all too common. With analysis from legal and policy experts, activists and advocates, Transgender Rights assesses the movement's achievements, challenges, and opportunities for future action. Examining crucial topics like family law, employment policies, public health, economics, and grassroots organizing, this groundbreaking book is an indispensable resource in the fight for the freedom and equality of those who cross gender boundaries. Moving beyond media representations to grapple with the real lives and issues of transgender people, Transgender Rights will launch a new moment for human rights activism in America.

Comprehensive and highly topical in its scope it explores gender through the disciplines of history, sociology, social policy, anthropology, psychology, politics, pedagogy and geography. The authors also interrogate the gendered aspects of 8 issues including health and illness, work and leisure, and culture and media to provide a truly interdisciplinary insight into the role of gender in every aspect of life. Each chapter highlights the importance of studies on masculinity alongside a substantial body of feminist work, offering a genuinely integrated and cutting-edge investigation of gender studies.

Der Band enthält die Beiträge eines bislang einmaligen Dialoges zwischen Neuro- und Biowissenschaften auf der einen, Theologie und Kirche auf der anderen Seite. Während sich in den letzten 20 Jahren durch neurobiologische Forschung ein Paradigmenwechsel vollzogen hat, der mit der Entpsychiatrisierung und Entpsychopathologisierung von Transsexualität verbunden ist, so bleibt eine systematische Reflexion von Transsexualität im Kontext von Theologie und Kirche nach wie vor ein Desiderat. Hier setzen die Beiträge des Sammelbandes an: Bereits vorliegende Forschungsergebnisse aus Sicht der beteiligten Disziplinen werden dokumentiert, kontroverse Standpunkte miteinander ins Gespräch gebracht und Perspektiven für einen ethisch, politisch und rechtlich angemessenen Umgang mit Transsexualität als einer paradigmatischen Herausforderung zur gesellschaftlichen Akzeptanz geschlechtlicher Vielfalt eröffnet.
