In day-to-day life, people often act as if they know exactly what they mean by boys and girls, masculine and feminine, butch and femme. Render Me, Gender Me challenges comfortable assumptions about gender by weaving Kath Weston's own thought-provoking commentary together with the voices of lesbians from a variety of race and class backgrounds.
Weston's witty, lyrical writing style coupled with the voices of the interviewees makes this enjoyable for the lay reader LIBRARY JOURNAL
