Janet Mock is an author and fierce social justice advocate. After publicly proclaiming her identity as a trans woman in 2011, Mock has focused her efforts on speaking about the struggles, triumphs and portrayals of girls and women like herself. In 2012, she launched #GirlsLikeUs, a movement that encourages trans women to live visibly. She currently writes and speaks about her experience of living at the intersections of identities. Mock published her memoir, titled Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More, in early February, and her commentary has appeared on NPR, Marie Claire magazine, Piers Morgan, MSNBC, and Colorlines, among others.
