Book cover and launch poster

We are pleased to announce that Is Gender Fluid? A Primer for the 21st Century has been translated into Chinese. Co-written by Sally Hines, Chair of Sociology and Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in The Department of Sociological Studies and Matthew Taylor, the book was originally published by Thames and Hudson in 2018 as part of their Big Idea series, which explores emergent and contemporary themes.   

Following the global resurgence of the #MeToo movement in 2017 and significant movements for LGBT rights throughout 2018, this timely and thought-provoking book asks questions at the forefront of our society today; is gender something we are or something we do? Is our expression of gender inborn, or does it develop as we grow? Are the traditional binary male and female gender roles still relevant in the modern world? Newly translated, the book will now be accessible to readers in China where the Women’s movement continues to gain traction against the backdrop of Covid-19.
