Munroe Bergdorf explores the fluidity of gender

Added on

  • DOCUMENTARY What Makes A Woman?, 10pm, Channel 4

    "I'm beyond excited to share this documentary with everybody," says the host of this documentary, social activist and transgender model Munroe Bergdorf, "filming has been an emotional and turbulent journey." That's because as well as focusing on the wider conversation of gender and its fluidity, What Makes A Woman? also follows Bergdorf's own struggles with gender dysmorphia. She takes part in a groundbreaking gender study and walks the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, but not before undergoing facial feminisation surgery to make Bergdorf feel like her true self. It makes for a poignant and sometimes difficult watch, but important none the less, especially if you've followed Bergdorf's journey so far.
