Is masculinity ‘toxic’? Why are public toilets such a political issue? How has feminism changed the available gender roles-- and for whom? Why might we all benefit from challenging binary thinking about sex/gender?
In this unique illustrated guide, Meg-John Barker and Jules Scheele travel through our shifting understandings of gender across time and space-- from ideas about masculinity and femininity, to non-binary and trans genders, to intersecting experiences of gender, race, sexuality, class, disability and more.
Tackling current debates and tensions, which can divide communities and even cost lives, Barker and Scheele look to the past and the future to explore how we might all approach gender in more caring and celebratory ways.
Meg-John Barker is the author of a number of popular books on sex, gender and relationships, drawing on their years of academic research and therapeutic practice in these areas.
Jules Scheele is an illustrator, graphic facilitator and comic book artist. Scheele runs One Beat Zines, a feminist zine collective and distributor.
