Lorber argues that it is time to rebel against gender as a social institution-to challenge its basic processes and practices. Feminists have tried to restructure and change the dynamics of interaction between women and men, but they have not pushed their agenda to the point of calling for the abolition of gender boundaries and categories. Breaking the Bowls explores why undoing gender must be the ultimate feminist goal and how that goal can be reached.

Breaking the Bowls is part of the Contemporary Societies series.
