***WINNER OF THE UK BLACK PRIDE LITERARY PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION DIVA AWARDS 2017***'Opens minds, breaks down myths and vaporises prejudice - I loved it!' Rebecca Root, star of Boy Meets Girl'funny, thoughtful and honest ... I read most of it on the train and had to stifle laughs every few pages' Stylist'It's a boy!' or 'It's a girl!' are the first words almost all of us hear when we enter the world. Before our names, before we have likes and dislikes - before we, or anyone else, has any idea who we are. And two years ago, as Juno Dawson went to tell her mother she was (and actually, always had been) a woman, she started to realise just how wrong we've been getting it.Gender isn't just screwing over trans people, it's messing with everyone. From little girls who think they can't be doctors to teenagers who come to expect street harassment. From exclusionist feminists to 'alt-right' young men. From men who can't cry to the women who think they shouldn't. As her body gets in line with her mind, Juno tells not only her own story, but the story of everyone who is shaped by society's expectations of gender - and what we can do about it. Featuring insights from well-known gender, feminist and trans activists including Rebecca Root, Laura Bates, Gemma Cairney, Anthony Anaxagorou, Hannah Witton, Alaska Thunderfuck and many more, The Gender Games is a frank, witty and powerful manifesto for a world in which everyone can truly be themselves.

A saucy, sassy, sweary look at gender, and how it trips and entraps us. -- Suzanne Harrington * Irish Examiner * This book is incredible, I loved it so much -- Emma Gannon * CTRL ALT DELETE podcast * Part memoir, part manifesto, The Gender Games is filled with the type of funny, thoughtful and honest writing that has made Dawson a multi-award winning YA author...Frank, witty, and educational' * Stylist * This memoir ... got me underlining, and texting friends, frequently. -- Stephanie Burt * TLS * One of the bravest, freshest voices -- Laura Dockrill * Observer *
