Reviews

"Germon s Gender: A Genealogy of an Idea is a truly significant addition to understanding that most fundamental of questions - what is human gender? Her wide-ranging, lucid, and riveting account of the relatively recent history of the symbolic and physical making of gender constitutes a crucial intervention into how we think and do gender." - Elspeth Probyn, Research SA Chair and Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies, University of South Australia
