Gender Through the Prism of Difference

Gender Through the Prism of Difference

Description

This engaging collection of readings presents a multifaceted view of contemporary gender relations. Using other inequalities such as race, class, and sexual orientation as a "prism of difference," the readings present gender as it is situated in sexual, racial-ethnic, social class, physical abilities, age, and national citizenship contexts. In addition to articles about men, women, and sexual and immigrant diversity, this reader also includes works on gender and globalization. The editors introduce this wide-ranging collection with a provocative analytical introduction that sets the stage for students' understanding of gender as a socially constructed experience. More than any other gender reader, Gender through the Prism of Difference gives students a clear, current, understanding of gender in a broad social context.
