‘What Is a Woman?’: anti-transgender propaganda

What Is a Woman? is a 2022 American anti-transgender propaganda piece distributed online by conservative media outlet The Daily Wire.

Hosted by anti-trans extremist Matt Walsh, the film was released to subscribers in June 2022, soon followed by a companion book, What Is a Woman?: One Man’s Journey to Answer the Question of a Generation.


Walsh and the project’s producers created an anti-transgender front group called The Gender Unity Project in order to lure trans participants in under false pretenses. Using the name Makenna Lynn, Daily Wire associate producer Makenna Waters would contact potential interviewees. Associate Rebecca Dobkowitz also contacted people using a false name.

People who said they were contacted include MMA fighters Fallon Fox and Alanna McLaughlin, Miss Nevada USA winner Kataluna Enriquez, and Debi Jackson, parent to trans youth Avery Jackson.

Trans activist Eli Erlick revealed the scam in February 2022. The Gender Unity Project site was registered in 2021 to Justin Folk of Project Veritas.

The film was produced by Justin Folk, Dallas Sonnier, and Charlotte Roland. Folk directed.


On-camera interviews include:

Others who appear in the film include Don Sucher, Rodrigo Lehtinen, Naia Ōkami, and Carl Trueman.
