Biological bodies always seem to drop out of debates about the body and it's importance in western culture. They are assumed to be fixed, their workings irrelevant to theory. This book argues that these static views of biology do not serve feminist politics well. As a trained biologist the author uses ideas in physiology and anatomy to develop the feminist view that the biological body is is socially and culturally constructed.
