Gender: Still a Useful Category of Analysis?

Diogenes 57 (1):7-14 (2010)
This paper traces the history of uses of the word "gender". It suggests that though "gender" has been recuperated and become commonplace, many issues persist around the way "women" and "men", and the power relations between them, are defined and are evolving. Provided it still allows us to question the meanings attached to the sexes, how they are established and in what contexts, gender remains a useful, because critical, analytical category
