Arguments in the dispute over gender relations

The Heinrich Böll Foundation has recently published an e-book to provide arguments in the discussion about gender relations. The authors Regina Frey, Marc Gärtner, Manfred Köhnen, and Sebastian Scheele explore individual accusations against gender studies and present arguments on how to counter them. Discussed are e.g. the ideology accusation, the unscientific accusation as well as the application of double standards. These are also common defense mechanisms, avoidance strategies, and accusations against people who work on other power-critical issues, critiques of racism, and postcolonial theory. It’s worth taking a look at the publication!
