In Gender which is part of the Theorising Feminism series, the author points out that ‘gender is everywhere’, and when we allocate to the male and female sexes, specific distinctive attributes and roles, we are ‘doing’ gender. She suggests insightfully that gender ‘is both part of the world we live in, as well as a way of understanding our world’. Provocative and jargon-free, the book shows how gender identities mesh with those constituted by caste, class, religion and sexual preferences, forming a set of arrangements that have evolved through history. It enables the reader to undertake a fresh critical analysis of what we consider to be normal and given, to ask questions, to take stock of the self and the world.
