A new feminism is emerging.

Fairer Disputations is an international community of scholars, public intellectuals, journalists, and advocates that aims to advance a sex-realist feminism. We aggregate and publish popular and scholarly articles dedicated to defending a vision of female and male as embodied expressions of human personhood, with special focus on the current threats to women and girls from sex trafficking and prostitution, pornography, trans ideology, and reproductive technology. Though united in an understanding that biological sex is real, we publish an array of perspectives on how society ought properly to accommodate that reality.
