Resources on Queer Misogyny, Transmisogyny, 

and Misogyny In General

Compiled by Blyth Barnow from the brilliance found in the Femme Secret Society facebook group

This list of articles was generated as a result of countless conversations between Femmes about how to navigate the intense misogyny they encounter in their lives. If you question the reality of queer misogyny, femmephobia, or the burden of care placed on Femmes, let the very fact that this list exists prove otherwise.

This list doesn’t speak for all Femmes. In fact I’m not even sure I agree with everything here. It’s up to you to think critically and sort it all out.
