Young children, gender and the heterosexual matrix

Cite Embed

Carrie Paechter, Goldsmiths, University of London, discusses the adult focus of current mainstream gender theory and relates this to how the concept of the heterosexual matrix originates in a social contract which excludes children from civil society. She argues that this exclusion is problematic both for theoretical reasons and from the perspective of children themselves.
