Twenty-seven years after its original publication, Problemas de Género is finally available in Portugal in partnership with Orfeu Negro. This is one of the most important texts of feminist theory, gender studies and queer theory. By defining the concept of gender as performativity – that is, as something that is constructed and that is ultimately a performance – Problemas de Género rethought concepts of feminism and laid the foundation for queer theory, revolutionizing the language of activism.
