Julia Serano is a writer, performer, activist and biologist. She is the author of Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity (Seal Press, 2007), a collection of personal essays that reveal how misogyny frames popular assumptions about femininity and shapes many of the myths and misconceptions people have about transsexual women. Julia’s other writings have appeared in anthologies, in feminist, queer, pop culture and literary magazines and websites and have been used as teaching materials in gender studies, queer studies, psychology and human sexuality courses in colleges across North America. In addition to her gender-related writing and activism, Julia has a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biophysics from Columbia University, and for 17 years worked as a researcher in the fields of genetics, developmental and evolutionary biology at UC Berkeley.
