What Makes a Woman?

In this documentary, transgender model and activist Munroe Bergdorf examines the changing world of gender and identity. Her journey includes gruesome surgery, new science, and some outspoken views from all sides.

“Thought-provoking, primarily because, despite the broad title of the show, the focus is narrow, exploring the thorny, emotive issues surrounding identity through the perspective of a single trans woman.” The Standard.

Broadcast in May, the documentary is available to watch on 4 Demand.
