While feminist and queer/LGBTQIA+ movements are designed to challenge sexism, they often simultaneously police gender and sexuality- sometimes just as fiercely as the straight-male-centric mainstream does. Here, acclaimed feminist and queer activist Julia Serano chronicles this problem of exclusion within these movements. She advocates for a more holistic approach to fighting sexism that avoids these pitfalls, and offers new ways of thinking about gender, sexuality, and sexism that foster inclusivity rather than exclusivity.

"In her latest book, Serano elaborates on arguments from her first book, Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity, putting hard-won lessons about feminism, queer politics, and gender to good use in a sharp and accessible essay collection... Her unique take on the nature-versus-nurture debate is refreshing for its candor and nuance, avoiding dogmatism on either side."

- Publisher's Weekly

"Serano's ability to show the structural links between different forms of discrimination is eye-opening. Her new book is a must-read for anyone interested in equality, or just in treating each other more decently."

- Chicago Reader

"In Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive, author Julia Serano's vision of an updated and holistic feminism isn't just about making some elbow room for those of us marginalized in the struggle. It calls for full and equal participation. The new image of feminism looks like all of us... [She] transforms topics mired in controversy and complexity and skillfully narrows them down."
