What is sexual difference and why does it matter? What is gender? Is there an essence of ‘woman’? In what ways is our understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity informed and challenged by advances in biology? By feminism By queer theory? Speaking both as a woman and a philosopher, Catherine Malabou will guide us through these urgent and perplexing questions.
