What does it mean to be woman? Is it a body? Is it hair and makeup? Is it expectations of society? What if it’s none of those things?
Inspired by one trans-woman’s struggles with ideals of femininity and beauty, Transmata explores something too many women share. Her story is our story. Unattainable standards of beauty and femininity permeate our daily lives. Who decides our beauty? Who decides our worth? Who decides self? What if we could all be exactly who we are? We CAN! We are beautiful just as we are.
