Janet Mock

Host of MSNBC’s So Popular! and New York Times bestselling author, Janet Mock is a writer, cultural commentator, advocate for trans women’s rights. Her advocacy has earned her honors from the Feminist Press, GLSEN, and Planned Parenthood. Mock’s memoir, Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More has been called “A lifemap for transformation,” by feminist cultural critic Bell Hooks. Melissa Harris-Perry says Mock “tells a story of the self, which turns out to be a reflection of all humanity.”
