Magnus Hirschfeld and the Quest for Sexual Freedom: A History of the First International Sexual Freedom Movement

By Elena Mancini, 2010

The text is the first case study of Magnus Hirschfeld whose theories and activism exposed the limits of the binary-system of gender and sought to advance the notion of gender fluidity in the field of sexology. More than a biography, the author advocates for a reconsideration of Hirschfeld’s work and its critical engagement with not only academia, but the political and social sphere at the time and its usefulness to us in the present.
