In the Western Hemisphere, gender issues have become an integral part of our lives. Few people realize, however, that they are based on profound philosophical presuppositions. After an extensive literary critique on the subject, Beatriz Vollmer analyzes the different philosophical currents, which have taken gender issues and feminism in so many directions. As her doctoral dissertation, this work has innovative views regarding the complementarity and asymmetry of the sexes, as well as a detailed philosophical explanation of equality, identity, difference and sameness in the context of male and female. Perhaps her greatest contribution to this subject is the new perspective she gives to the sex-gender distinction.
