Thinking about Women: Sociological Perspectives on Sex and Gender offers an interdisciplinary look at women and gender issues. It introduces you to gender and how it operates in society, providing a clear-headed assessment of how the lives of both women and men have changed over the years. The text explores the social construct of gender, including how it intersects with other social factors: race, class, sexuality, age, religion, nationality and others.
The 11th Edition focuses on gender in major social institutions, including the economy and the criminal justice system. Media Matters features draw your attention to gender issues and their portrayal in the media. And A Closer Look at Men features highlight ways that gender issues impact men.
