Sociological perspectives on sex and gender have developed from a binary understanding of sex and gender as biological categories, through the social construction of gender, and the performance of both sex and gender. This talk gives an overview of the development of different sociological approaches to sex and gender and emphasises the importance of intersectional analyses.
