Summary
From Barbie and Action Man to guns via bicycles, perfume and trainers, The gendered object is an intriguing collection of new writing on the way in which objects of everyday life are made socially acceptable and 'appropriate' for women or men. What does the Strawberry Shortcake doll tell us about views of the adult female body? When does the necktie become anti-establishment? How does a woman relate to a washing machine? And can a hearing aid really be gendered? These questions are answered and many others raised in this entertaining study of design for men and women
