In a recent interview, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie with Channel 4 said that it is difficult to equate the experience of trans-women with that of women.

She said: “It’s about our experiences. It’s not about how we wear our hair, it’s not about having a p*nis or a v*gina, it’s about the way the world treats us,” Chimamanda said, referring to “the whole problem of gender in the world.”
