Undoing Gender is a 2004 book by Judith Butler.

Summary[edit]

Butler examines gender, sex, psychoanalysis and the medical treatment of intersex people. Focusing on the case of David Reimer who was medically reassigned from male to female after a botched circumcision, Butler reexamines the theory of performativity that she originally explored in Gender Trouble. While many of Butler's books are intended for a highly academic audience, Undoing Gender reaches out to a much broader readership.
