Sexual Citizenship and Queer Post-Feminism makes new connections between post-feminism and queer theory to explore the complexities of contemporary gender and sexuality. In a wide-ranging examination of sex education, safe sex, and sexual healthcare, this book demonstrates how queer post-feminist discourses practically shape young women’s lives.

Bisexual, pansexual, non-binary, queer. With the ever-expanding scope of gender and sexuality categories, some feminists have bemoaned a "shrinking of the lesbian world." But how do young women understand these identity politics? Drawing on extensive interviews with queer young people, this book offers a timely exploration of the links between identity, sex, and health.

Drawing on interdisciplinary perspectives grounded in international social science research, this book will appeal to students and scholars with interests in sexuality and sexual health and those in the fields of gender and sexuality studies, public health, social work, and sociology. The book also offers implications for practice, suitable for policy-makers, health practitioners, and activist audiences.

About the Series

Routledge Advances in Critical Diversities

Advances in Critical Diversities provides an exciting new publishing space to critically consider practices, meanings and understandings of "diversity," inequality and identity across time and place. The book series will have a particular focus on developing an extended conceptualization of diversity and division which incorporates dimensions of political, social, economic and cultural, as well as the bodily and intimate, to consider how diversity is lived-in, inhabited, mobilised and refused.
