Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lorber argues that it is time to rebel against gender as a social institution'"to challenge its basic processes and practices. Feminists have tried to restructure and change the dynamics of interaction between women and men, but they have not pushed their agenda to the point of calling for the abolition of gender boundaries and categories. Breaking the Bowlsexplores why undoing gender must be the ultimate feminist goal and how that goal can be reached.

Breaking the Bowls is part of the Contemporary Societies series.

Book News Annotation:

Lorber (emerita, Brooklyn College and the City U. of New York) believes gender is an organizing principle of social practices and concepts, and should be redefined to accommodate the range of experience in the population, from the family to the workplace to the global systems of politics and economics. She sees paradoxes in gender as currently expressed, from the strategies of feminist politics to the atrocities practiced by terrorists, and finds much to commend about a completely degendered society, including a number of advantages for those who once thought of themselves as strictly male or female and acted accordingly. In closing, she is realistic but also optimistic about the revolution in gender that is to come.
