"No matter what I say, to trans people I’ll always be a villain."

A daring and bold philosopher, Kathleen Stock is not afraid to question established dogmas. She was a professor of philosophy at the University of Sussex until 2021. Stock has published on a wide range of topics from aesthetics, fiction, and imagination, to sexual objectification, and sexual orientation.

Stock's most recent book is Material Girls which argues against the idea of gender as a social construct. She has made multiple media appearances after her resignation from Sussex University, including on LBC, Good Morning Britain and BBC's Hardtalk. Most recently, Stock made waves defending her gender-critical views at the Oxford Union.

"A curious mind and a generous spirit." Sarah Ditum
