Description - Feminism and the Biological Body by Lynda Birke

Biological bodies always seem to drop out of debates about the body and it's importance in western culture. They are assumed to be fixed, their workings irrelevant to theory. This book argues that these static views of biology do not serve feminist politics well. As a trained biologist the author uses ideas in physiology and anatomy to develop the feminist view that the biological body is is socially and culturally constructed. She rejects the ides that the body's functioning is fixed and unchanging, claiming that biological science offers more than just a deterministic narrative of "how nature works".
