"At last! Real people's lives are touched by intersexuality in ways that cannot be understood in narrow terms of genes, hormones, and surgical techniques. Here is the volume that clinicians, teachers, counselors, parents, feminist, and philosophers have needed in order to understand intersexuality." - Cheryl Chase, founder, Intersex Society of North America
Alice Dreger is a Professor of Clinical Medical Humanities and Bioethics at Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University."In a phrase, I do social justice work in medicine and science. I do that through my research, writing, speaking, and advocacy. . . Much of my professional energies has gone to using history to improve the medical and social treatment of people born with norm-challenging bodies, including people with atypical sex (intersex and disorders of sex development), conjoinment, dwarfism, and cleft lip. The question that motivates many of my projects is this: Why not change minds instead of bodies?"
