“We act as if that being of a man or that being of a woman is actually an internal reality or something that is simply true about us, a fact about us, but actually it's a phenomenon that is being produced all the time and reproduced all the time, so to say gender is performative is to say that nobody really is a gender from the start,” writes Judith Butler, whose book “Gender Trouble”, our guest highly recommends. So close to us and yet so opaque, our gendered bodies have a profound effect on our live chances and our relationships. Today, we explore how Gender Studies might be a way out of the thicket of socially constructed identities around sex, gender and sexuality.
