Transforming Sex: An Interview with Joanne Meyerowitz, Ph.D. Author of How Sex Changed: A History of Transsexuality in the United States

Vernon A. Rosario, M.D., Ph.D., Interviewer

Christine Jorgensen's widely publicized sex reassignment surgery in 1952 brought transsexualism to worldwide attention and fostered medical interest in transsexualism. Joanne Meyerowitz has traced the history of Jorgensen's personal odyssey, the medical history of transsexualism, and the broader impact of transsexualism on United States culture.

Finally, she sets her historical work in the context of contemporary gender and transgender politics.
