The Riddle of Gender: Science, Activism, and Transgender Rights

by Deborah Rudacille Author

With a mix of research and author-conducted interviews, Deborah Rudacille sought to understand gender transition and the many perspectives it can be understood - historical, sociological, psychological, medical, and personal. The search revealed that although transgender people have been met with hostility, transition has also been accepted through the years. In finding that physical traits don't always match a person's sexuality, this book aims to question society's beliefs about "what it means to be . . . a human being."
