Pressestimmen

"[A]n imaginative, original, and complex volume that crystallizes feminist dilemmas regarding the origin and persistence of gender roles... Ultimately this book--pluralistic, experiential, and collaborative--inspires us to search for games that give voice to participants' exploratory and even competitive desires while enabling them to build identities based on the emotional nuances of real life." Sandra Hackman, Women's Review of Books
