This paper seeks to explore the implications of transgender for gender theory and politics and for gender equality. Transgender can be seen to challenge the gender binary system and the social system which is based on this. However, this challenge is masked by the social exclusion of transgender people internationally, although there are exceptions to this in a number of countries. Transphobia, or the stigmatisation of transgender people, stems from a number of sources. A movement challenging transphobia and the exclusion of transgender people is developing in the West.
