When I wrote Sex Changes, I never imagined that other women would identify with the term transwidow. But then, I never imagined all the pain that was out there – women going through remarkably similar experiences and receiving breath-takingly little support. Fortunately, we can stand for ourselves and each other. In a stifling climate, we can raise our voices and refuse to be silenced. I remain deeply grateful for all who have offered their support to me.
I’ve been asked to provide the link to a site that readers of this blog might want to explore.
