The topic and language of gender is comprehensive and evolving, and contemporary discourse surrounding it may often be subjective and misleading. In his book, Traversing Gender: Understanding Transgender Realities, Harrington explores the myriad of terminologies and diversity of experiences, breaking down the various facets and stereotypes of gender into concise, understandable segments. This book examines topics such as gender presentation, expression and behaviours in popular culture, while devoting ample consideration to matters such as social, medical, legal, sexual, allies, and more. Professionally written, yet aiming to reach audiences outside of academia, this book is a critical resource for providing essential information regarding the intersectionality and complexities of differently-gendered individual's lives.
