[Material Girls] pack[s] a punch . . . A call for cool heads at a time of great heat and a vital reminder that revolutions don't always end well -- Christina Patterson * Sunday Times *
Reading the book I felt an intense sense of relief that finally a comprehensive account of gender identity theory was presented and explored with both clarity and depth . . . a clear, concise, easy-to-read account of the issues between sex, gender and feminism . . . an important book, and it is the middle ground who need to read it as it shows how, if we are to live in a world where gender identity trumps biological sex, then it will be women - the physically weaker sex - who lose out -- Stella O'Malley * Evening Standard *
In her commitment to free speech, good-faith debate, clear and careful argument and upholding reason over dogma, Stock writes faithfully in the tradition of the Enlightenment -- Mary Carington * UnHerd *
A fearless, rigorous study of gender identity . . . [Material Girls is] a brave, enlightening, closely argued book -- Jane O'Grady * Daily Telegraph *
A clear-sighted analysis in tricky territory * Evening Standard *
Anyone who has felt confounded by the shifting debate about sex and gender will find some clarity here. More importantly, you will find a curious mind and a generous spirit -- Sarah Ditum * Mail on Sunday *
