Author Juno on Bodily Autonomy in Guardian

17/02/2022

Juno Dawson top author and advocate for transwomen’s rights in a pluralistic society, writes eloquently for the Guardian – a newspaper which has in the past faced some criticism for giving undue prominence to fringe anti-trans feminist sects – on the bodily autonomy that she enjoys and that the trans movement can guarantee for all women. Juno says “None of us are beholden to our bodies. That is not to say that our bodies aren’t vital; they are. Being a woman – cisgender or trans – can feel like you are being set up to fail from the start, and our bodies often affect how well we are able to function within society. But I believe in individual bodily autonomy; a refusal to let the system predetermine or limit your choices is one of the ways we attack patriarchal structures”.
