Successful Black Women: Janet Mock

This transgender advocate uses her platform and the skills she’s cultivated as a journalist to bring marginalized stories to the forefront. She has written two memoirs about her own experience; her first, a best-seller, was the first biography from the perspective of a young trans person. And she started the hashtag #GirlsLikeUs to foster a sense of community online for trans women. Five years ago, she also founded the #TransBookDrive to get LGBT books into the hands of trans prisoners.
