Janet Mock is a writer, the founder of the #girlslikeus project, author of Redefining Realness, a board member at the Arcus Foundation and so much more. Learn about her journey, work and mission. Since sharing her story, Janet has traveled the country addressing audiences from Columbia and Stanford to Wellesley and University of Pennsylvania. Through her presentations she describes her lived experiences as a trans woman of color and contextualizes those experiences to draw connections between her life, her work and her overall mission to broaden society’s portrait of womanhood. She speaks about the power of storytelling, the history of trans women-led movements, the media’s portrayals of trans women, and the personal-political dynamics of visibility.
