Redefine what it means to be 'masculine' or 'feminine' with the Routledge Classic Gender Trouble:Feminism and the Subversion of Identity by Judith Butler.
The debate over gender definitions and inequalities rages on in academic scholarship and popular culture today as strongly as it did when Judith Butler first wrote Gender Trouble. Butler's work will forever be an essential contribution to resolving what it really means to be female. Such a book cannot exist without causing controversy, and Gender Trouble is as celebrated as it is controversial.

You can also check out this excerpt from the text, Preface and Chapter One: Subjects of Sex/Gender/Desire, and Butler's recent interview withThe New York Times' George Yancy, What’s Wrong With ‘All Lives Matter’?.
