Meg-John Barker‘s new book How to Understand Your Gender comes out today! Published by Jessica Kingsley and co-authored with psychotherapist Alex Iantaffi, this book attempts to make the psychology of gender accessible to everybody. The Open University CCIG kindly sponsored Julia Scheele‘s beautiful cover and illustrations throughout the book.

The blurb for How To Understand Your Gender says…

Have you ever questioned your own gender identity? Do you know somebody who is transgender or who identifies as non-binary? Do you ever feel confused when people talk about gender diversity?

This down-to-earth guide is for anybody who wants to know more about gender, from its biology, history and sociology, to how it plays a role in our relationships and interactions with family, friends, partners and strangers. It looks at practical ways people can express their own gender, and will help you to understand people whose gender might be different from your own. With activities and points for reflection throughout, this book will help people of all genders engage with gender diversity and explore the ideas in the book in relation to their own lived experiences.
