    One thought on “Masculinity/Femininity: Supplemental Booklet”

    1. Masculinity/Femininity is a great resource for anyone interested in gender, sexuality, culture, art, and much more. I loved the wide range of approaches to the interview questions; every interview is unique, but together they paint a fascinating picture of contemporary gender construction.
