When Sex Became Gender

Routledge (2006)
This book is a study of post World War II feminist theory from the viewpoint of intellectual history. The key theme is that the social construction of gender has its origins in the feminist theorists of this period. This paradigm is a key foundational element to both second and third wave feminist thought. It will focus on the five key scholars of the period: Komarovsky, de Beauvoir, Mead, Klein and Herschberger. This has been a somewhat overlooked period in the development of feminist theory and philosophy and Tarrant makes a compelling case for it (the fifties) being the turning point in the study of gender.
