Though this text comes from the 1970s, when prevailing notions of gender were still painfully binary, I think there will be some usable content. I’m particularly interested in the chapter where Strathern details (and debunks) existing gender stereotypes and the very idea of gender stereotyping. In my reading so far, she’s already placed the terms “man” and “woman” in quotation marks, and made mention of ever-toxic “gender-thinking.” Looks good so far.

I am a student at a small liberal arts college on the East Coast of the United States, working on a thesis combining studies in the fields of French Studies, Medieval Studies, Gender Studies, and Music. I am non-binary and identify as a member of the trans+ community. I prefer to be called T in English and Thé in French--my pronouns are they/them/theirs. When I'm not researching, I enjoy singing in choirs (both medieval music and not), running, knitting, and teaching small children. Questions about this? Feel free to ask!
