Day 07- A book that’s hard to read

This one is tough, but I'm taking the easy way out. I'm going hard to read in that I needed to reread paragraphs to be sure I really understood what the author was saying. So my answer is Gender Trouble: Feminism and the Subversion of Identity by Judith Butler. Judith Butler was my go to theorist during my third year, honours and my brief bout with a masters. Yes, it took work to be sure I was on the right track with understanding her work, but nothing changed the way I saw gender as much as her work. I suppose you can tell that gender and identity were the focus points of my academic career ;)

If you want to read this, I suggest pick a chapter, and a section from that chapter and go from there. It's hard going, but worth it. :)
