Storify is closing down. This is an archive of my post, Justice for Dr V: Journalism Ethics and Transphobia. First published on 20 January 2014.
Dr V (Dr Essay Anne Vanderbilt) is a transgender woman who invented a golf club.

These are my tweets showcasing the best articles on this story. #JusticeForDrV.
