New Gender Zine

Alex Iantaffi and I have created a zine about gender to give you a sense of the kind of thing we cover in our book How to Understand Your Gender. It includes the gorgeous images that Julia Scheele drew for us, kindly paid for by the Open University.

You can download the zine here and work through it to explore gender in general – and your own gender. If there’s anything you want to find out more about, we give furthers detail in the book, and there’s a list of further resources at the back of the zine
