“Gender Born, Gender Made brings to our homes, schools and clinician’s offices a wealth of ideas and tools that will prove invaluable as we move towards a more empathic, just and inclusive society.”
—Edgardo J. Menvielle, MD, MSHS, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, The George Washington University, Director Gender and Sexuality Development Program, Children’s National Medical Center, Washington, DC and author of the foreword to Gender Born, Gender Made.
“Dr. Ehrensaft has written a seminal and informative book that fills what has been a gaping abyss in the literature for parents rearing gender non-conforming children. There have been few resources available for parents with children whose gender expression is notably different from their peers, and they are often isolated and frightened. Informed by her years of experience as psychologist working with children and families as well as her years of experience as a mother, Dr. Ehrensaft understands the anguish of parents, as well as their enduring and fierce love and support for their children. This is a book that is informed by scholarly advice, yet reads with a gentle advocacy and parental support – it will be read and earmarked, a Dr. Spock for the twenty-first century. Finally, a book I can hand parents that guides them in this unique and rewarding journey.”
