Female and male brains are different, thanks to hormones coursing through the brain before birth. That’s taught as fact in psychology textbooks, academic journals, and bestselling books. And these hardwired differences explain everything from sexual orientation to gender identity, to why there aren’t more women physicists or more stay-at-home dads.

« Je me souviens de l'ironie avec laquelle on répétait dans ma famille qu'enfant, je « voulais tout ». Pauvre naïve : naïve d'en avoir envie, naïve de croire que c'était possible et naïve de le dire. Naïve, je le suis restée et le revendique : have it all, vivre pleinement sa vie, ne pas renoncer avant d'avoir essayé, je voudrais que cela soit possible pour toutes les femmes. J'ai beaucoup reçu, beaucoup combattu et beaucoup obtenu. J'ai aussi connu dans de nombreux pays, d'innombrables destins de femmes qui m'ont fait réfléchir. J'ai vu dans leurs vies des reflets de la mienne.

This study delves beyond the familiar image of Ellen Wilkinson as the leader of the Jarrow Crusade. It has unearthed new evidence to provide a richer understanding of her remarkable achievements, her acquaintances and her witnessing of history's great turning points. From a humble background, she ascended to the rank of Minister in the 1945 Labour government. Yet she was much more than a conventional Labour politician. She wrote journalism, political theory and novels. She was both a socialist and a feminist; at times, she described herself as a revolutionary.

Traduit de l’anglo-américain, le concept de genre s’est progressivement imposé en France au cours des quinze dernières années. Il recouvre désormais un corpus incluant d’autres concepts qui l’ont précédé, tels que « rapports sociaux de sexe » ou « domination masculine ». L’objectif de ce manuel est de mieux cerner la polysémie du genre et d’introduire aux recherches prolifiques qui sont rassemblées sous sa bannière.

Le mouvement des femmes a fait voler en éclats toutes les idées traditionnelles sur virilité et féminité. Longtemps la masculinité a paru aller de soi. Chaque homme se devait de ressembler à un idéal bien campé dans la culture. Désormais, au contraire, les hommes sont amenés à s'interroger sur une identité que la formule chromosomique XY ne suffit pas à définir.
