About this book
Subtitled, "Feminism & The Subversion Of Identity". A book as celebrated as it is controversial, now in its third edition.
Arguing that traditional feminism is wrong to look to a natural notion of the female, or indeed of sex or gender, this book questions the category 'woman' and continues in this vein with examinations of 'the masculine' and 'the feminine'. It considers gender as a reiterated social "performance" rather than the expression of a prior reality.
