About the book…
What is gender diversity? Doesn't diversity often mean a focus on people who vary from typically gendered people, like intersex people and drag queens? What would it mean to talk about gender diversities. Maurer and Plante demonstrate the multiple ways in which the universe of gender is socially, culturally, and historically constructed. The book focuses on both hegemonic and transgressive gender development, roles, identities, and practices.
