In her review “Opening Our Eyes to Sex Perception” Jamie Mullaney describes Asia Friedman’s book “Blind to Sameness” as “a fascinating, unique, and important contribution the fields of sex and gender, sociology of the senses, sociology of the body, and cognitive sociology”. The book links neatly up to long-standing debates about performing gender, yet shifts the perspective by examining how people come to observe gender differences.
