Reviews

"Theorizing Gender is an overview of the important debates to take place in gender since we began theorizing it. It is not only a trustworthy introduction for students but in its impartial approach and lucid prose it is also an exemplary contribution to these debates." Dr Jay Prosser, School of English, University of Leeds


"This is a valuable and refreshingly clear exploration of some of the most discussed issues in feminist theory and philosophy, such as theories of gender and male domination, identity politics, subjectivity and agency, the relation between gender and sexuality, and the equality/difference debate. Especially valuable is the clear account of authors who discuss psychoanalytic theory, such as Judith Butler, Lacan and Foucault. The authors make an important contribution to gender studies with their new conceptualization of the bodily imaginary, as a way to bridge the gap between gender theory and sexual difference theory." Ann Ferguson, Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
