Epigraph
Dedication
In deepest gratitude to my beloved mother, Florence Bienenfeld (1929-2016), who taught me how to tend, advocate, and protect what is sacred. Mom, you raised an Amazon.

To Chava, Mother of the Living, and her older sister Lillith, who were willing to risk the loss of a man-made "paradise" for full female autonomy.

To Mary Daly and Andrea Dworkin (of blessed memory), Janice Raymond and Sheila Jeffreys for refusing to be silenced and for speaking out on behalf of all of us.

To the workers, craftswomen, workshop presenters, performers, attendees, Lisa Vogel and staff of The Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, who for 40 years provided the space for us to vision and experience the possibilities of female sovereign space to celebrate, educate, debate, and empower our diverse female tribes.

To our Granddaughters and Great Granddaughters. May you be blessed with the wisdom of your ancestors and foremothers, and remain courageous to claim and revel in your embodied female power.

In the beginning... was a very female era.

Book description
This anthology brings together voices of more than forty writers celebrating female embodiment while exploring deeper issues of misogyny, violence and sexism in gender identity politics today, demonstrating the intentional silencing and erasure of living female realities.

These perspectives come at a time when gender politics and profits from an emerging medical transgenderism industry for children, teens, and adults inhibits our ability to have meaningful discussions about sex, gender, changing laws that have provided sex-based protections for women and girls, and the re-framing of language referring to females as a distinct biological class.

Through researched articles, essays, first-hand experience, story telling, and verse, these voices are needed to ignite the national conversation about the politics of gender-identity as a backlash to feminist goals of liberation from gender stereotypes, oppression and sexual violence.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0997146702, Paperback)

Female Erasure is a dynamic collection of diverse voices speaking out against gender identity politics, exposing the origins and harmful effects of transgender ideology on the lives of women and children today as a continuation of female erasure and silencing. This anthology comes at a time when gender identity politics and profits from an emerging medical transgenderism industry for children, teens, and adults inhibit our ability to have meaningful discussions about sex, gender, changing laws that have provided sex-based protections for women and girls, and the re-framing of language referring to females as a distinct biological class. Standing strongly against gender stereotypes, female oppression, and the sexual violence prevalent in all levels of society, women’s voices celebrate their lives and examine their struggles through articles, essays, firsthand accounts, and verse. Lesbian feminists, political feminists, spiritual feminists, heterosexual-womanist women, mothers, scholars, attorneys, poets, medical and mental health professionals, educators, environmentalists, and detransitioning women all boldly vocalize their unique perspectives and universal experiences. The contributors to Female Erasure know that their views are controversial, and many people will oppose their work. But they refuse to be silenced by critics, striving instead toward deep, meaningful discussion with readers about the biases of modern society and the future of women’s rights.
