Is Gender Fluid? Text by Sally Hines, General Editor Matthew Taylor. Published by Thames and Hudson

Why is it that some people experience such dissonance between their biological sex and their inner identity? Is gender something we are or something we do? Are the traditional binary male and female gender roles relevant in an increasingly fluid and flexible world? 

This perceptive, stimulating volume assesses the connections between gender, psychology, culture and sexuality, and reveals how individual and social attitudes have evolved over the centuries.

The book contains and introduction and chapters focusing on: Gender as an Expression of Biological Sex, Gender as a Social Construct, Gender Diversity andGender Activism.
