In 2014, Time announced that the United States had reached a “Transgender Tipping Point” whereby a newfound media visibility of trans women of color such as Laverne Cox and Janet Mock would pave the way for an unceasingly bright future for trans and gender diverse people. In the five years since that article was released, however, the Trump Administration and several conservative state governments have rolled back legislative protections for trans people in schools, the military, housing, public accommodations, prisons, bureaucratic identification, and employment. How can history help to contextualize and explain this turn of events? What lessons can we learn about women’s activism by looking to historical struggles?
