Peggy Drexler is a psychologist whose books examine the roles that gender and sexuality play within family relationships. Nuclear Family.

 

"I've always been fascinated by how gender experiences in childhood contribute to the adults we will become. Spending a career in this area, I know there is no such thing as 'gender neutral.' The worlds of boys and girls can be very different places. And what they encounter there plays out in their lives in a wide variety of ways."
