Munroe Bergdorf, a British transgender model, has said she feels threatened by the attitudes of other women.
Speaking at an annual London event organised to celebrate womanhood, she argued that some women are guilty of creating a hostile environment for transgender people.
“I don’t feel safe because of other women,” Bergdorf said to the Women of the World audience. “That’s really weighing heavily on me.”
The mixed-race former L’Oréal model also said she had “dreaded” attending the event due to the threat she detects from “cisgender” females – those women who were assigned their gender at birth.
