Sheila Jeffreys - Biography
Sheila Jeffreys (born 13 May 1948), an English expatriate in Australia, is best known as a lesbian feminist scholar and political activist, for her analysis of the history and politics of sexuality in Britain, and for her controversial views on transsexualism. She was a professor in Political Science at the University of Melbourne in Australia. Jeffreys's argument that the "sexual revolution" on men's terms contributed less to women's freedom than to their continued oppression has both commanded respect and attracted intense criticism. Jeffreys argues that transsexuals reproduce oppressive gender roles and mutilate their bodies through sex reassignment surgery, that lesbian culture has been negatively affected by emulating the sexist influence of the gay male subculture of dominant/submissive sexuality, and that women suffering pain in pursuit of beauty is a form of submission to patriarchal sadism.
