Transfeminism has been defined by Emi Koyama as “a movement by and for trans women who view their liberation to be intrinsically linked to the liberation of all women and beyond.”
The term transfeminism has been used since the mid-1990s. Transfeminism aims to challenge patriarchal and heterosexist structures to create an equal environment for all.
“Transfeminism provides insights into feminism that are broadly informed by trans politics. For, while the experience of trans women differs from that of cisgender (non-trans) women in many ways, trans women (and men) also provide a unique perspective on gender difference. For, having lived on both sides of the gender fence, they alone have direct personal insight into how society differentiates – and discriminates between – men and women“. (Fae, 2017)
