Female Husbands: A Trans History

Emily Sienkiewicz

Those assigned female who transed gender, lived as men, and married women in the 18th and 19th century US and UK were described as female husbands. They persisted in living as men despite tremendous risk, violence, and punishment. When husbands were outed as being assigned female, the press reported such accounts enthusiastically and frequently, exposing dynamic, contested, and varied stories of love, courage, and loss. This talk explores what female husbands teach us about trans expressions, experiences, and rights then and now. Speaker: Jen Manion, author of Female Husbands This event is taking place online only.
