This book provides readers with an introduction to contemporary transsexual politics in Canadian and Québécois contexts. Through different case studies relating to the law, human rights, health care, and prostitution, Dr. Namaste exposes readers to the complexity of the issues involved in thinking about transsexual politics in relation to feminism.

Written in accessible language, and using a variety of forms, including interviews, essays, political speeches, the book will appeal to academics, activists in the community, and the general reader.
--- from the publisher

"This is a provocative, thoughtful book that challenges readers to think carefully about human rights, feminism, lesbian and gay struggles, and current transgender politics. Namaste's essays make up a useful collection, suitable for courses in Women's Studies, Gender Studies, Sexuality Studies, Sociology, and Canadian Studies."
-Dr. Meg Luxton, Director, Women's Studies, York University
