Gender Is a Choice: Inspired, Proactive, and Self-Actualised is a work of non-fiction that concerns themes of gender identity, equality, diversity, and human rights, and was penned by author Grace Alice Mukasa. This highly evocative and important work uncovers the gender biases and discriminations that still exist in our modern world, and discusses ways in which we can combat and dismantle harmful identities and ideologies in order to rebuild and establish true gender equality. Utilizing her own context of African gender culture as a prime example, the author goes on to explore such topics as male-female relations, socialization, and dynamics of power which makes for some eye-opening and compelling reading indeed.

Author Grace Alice Mukasa has crafted a work that everyone would benefit from reading, whether they think they are affected by gender inequality or not. The smooth, confident prose is exceedingly well written to produce a confident exposé and argument against continuing injustice in the modern world, which will surely be eye-opening to some and affirming to others. The variety of topics discussed are well-chosen, and the examples from the author’s own culture serve to prove points that are both specific and universal. The research and ideas presented are well-grounded in gender studies up to this point, and the new ideas presented are both inspiring and educational for those moving towards a brighter future. Overall, I would recommend Gender Is a Choice: Inspired, Proactive, and Self-Actualised for all readers to open their minds to this important and pressing issue.
