Welcome to The Psychology of Gender in which we explore the implications of our binary classification, at birth, of ‘boy’ or ‘girl’, how we make sense of it, how it impacts on all aspects of our lives, shaping the way we think about ourselves, about others, our relationships and our place in the world.

This site supports the book of the same name and is maintained by author Dr Gary Wood.  The aim of this site together with the Twitter account @gender_psych  is to continue the discussion of the issues raised by the book.  If you want to be a guest blogger, please get in touch.

  • Do we need to think beyond two category models of sex and gender?
  • What are the alternatives to binary gender?
  • What is the future of gender?
  • What does gender mean to you?

For a complimentary examination copy requests if considering The Psychology of Gender for adoption for your students on an academic course please contact the publisher, Routledge.
