Editorial Reviews


"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

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to read this book for class, and I loved every second of it. The book explores gender and sexuality from all angles, and the writers/editors have selected amazing articles to demonstrate their points and have organized the book in such a way that it is truly a fun read. It's thin, unintimidating, and it moves quickly with tons of relevant examples and articles. As I said, I loved every second. If you have any interest at all in the sociological aspects of gender, sex, and sexuality, I would recommend this book to you.

Format: Paperback
I had to read this book for a college class. However, I found it interesting and some articles/parts of the book made me think critically about our society. Some articles I did not find intriguing or true to life, but overall I enjoyed Lorber and Moore's book.
