Abstract
Judith Butler is a famous American post-structuralism philosopher and an influential feminist pioneer. Her research covers a wide range of fields. This paper attempts to trace the development of Judith Butler's theory of gender in order to fully grasp the dynamic process of her thought. Her theory of "gender performativity" has deep influence on gender studies, contemporary political philosophy, ethics and other academic studies.
