A tale of two feminisms: gender critical feminism, trans inclusive feminism and the case of Kathleen Stock

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this article I write on the rift between trans inclusive and gender critical feminists in the UK. I consider this division within university culture through a focus on the case of Kathleen Stock. I discuss the coverage of her resignation from the University of Sussex through a focus on The Daily Telegraph. From a trans inclusive feminist viewpoint, I discuss the way her case has been used to spread misinformation around universities, and trans people. I examine the key ideas of gender critical and trans inclusive feminists and present an analysis of concepts of free speech and debate that challenges gender critical beliefs. I end with a call for a way forward to strengthen feminism.
