I found this booklet very useful. First of all, it's very simple and digestible. Everyone can easily go through its contents as they're presented as dialogue and often as inquiries in this domain; its criticism and its openness to debate are establishing its credibility.
The book, loosely speaking, is more like a meditation of gender and its effects in the 'modern world' or how the idea of 'sex' and 'gender' evolved in the modern world.

The book has been published in 2000 but it is relevant today ever before. Everyone women, men, girls & boys; wherever they are north, south, east & west should read this book. This is very easy to read & the author has superbly explained all the complex concept in plain language.

A very enlightening reading material on Gender.
And most importantly, anyone can understand the text. It is not academic and jargony, rather, the concepts are explained in simple and lucid language.
