Synopsis

When was the last time you encountered someone whose gender you couldn't identify?
The experience is disconcerting, maybe frightening.
That is gender shock.
These are stories from the life of a woman who is often mistaken for a man. Sheila Gilhooly writes of encounters in change rooms and washrooms, hospitals and police cars, with strangers and people in authority, who all make the same mistake. They think she is a man.
They experience gender shock. She has to deal with their reactions.
Gilhooly writes with a wry sense of self, and a combination of vulnerability and pride in her identity that leaves a lasting impression.
