NotesThis edited book empirically explores contemporary feminism and feminist cultures. This single authored chapter examines the relationship between gender diversity and feminist theory and activism. Despite transgender being at the focus of feminist theory and politics for over two decades, this is the first publication to explore the links between feminism and transgender. The chapter draws on empirical research to explore the areas of commonality and difference between transgender and feminist theory and politics, and argues for stronger links between feminism and transgender. The book is published by Routledge in the UK and the US. The chapter was awarded the 2005 ‘Sylvia Rivera Award in Transgender Studies’ by the Centre for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the City University of New York (CUNY). Papers have been given at the British Sociological Association Conference in 2004, at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies at the University of Leeds in 2005, and at the 'Transforming Feminism' Conference at the State University of New York (SUNY) in 2006.
