"Gendered Bodies provides an accessible introduction to feminist perspectives on gender and the body and a wealth of resources for exploring this domain of inquiry. The authors are clearly committed to intersectional analyses, and make every effort to consider these issues vis-à-vis gender and the body. The book's unique format provides students with a combination of primary and secondary materials. I think the approach is excellent, [and] on the whole, this book is enormously compelling and accessible."--Sara Shostak, Brandeis University
"A book that so broadly, but coherently and concisely, addresses gendered bodies from a feminist perspective is perfect for [my course on Feminist Social and Political Thought]. Students have given me positive feedback on the book and we have had very lively and productive class discussions based on its readings. I look forward to assigning this terrific book in the future."--Barbara Sutton, University at Albany, State University of New York
"The text is foremost in the field. I could not imagine teaching my course without it!"--Simona J. Hill, Susquehanna University
"This book gives students a clear framework in which to understand how gender is an arbitrary and ongoing albeit hidden process--the body is no more natural than the self."--Kathleen Waites, Nova Southeastern University
