As part of Gender Week, the organizing team invited the president of the Harry Benjamin Resource Center (HBRS, a foundation working for the rights of transgender people), Tone Maria Hansen, to give a World Today presentation on gender identity. During the last decade, Tone Maria has been featured in various newspaper articles and in a TV-broadcast documentary, Absolutt Tone Maria, and can be seen as one of the leading figures of the Norwegian transgender movement. We were delighted to host her on this, her fourth visit to the College.
Among the many other activities and events held during the week – films, discussions and presentations – the Gender Week team, collaborating with The Publishing Cabin, have produced ‘A Brief Illustrated Herstory of Womankind’. Read it here.
