This core text for sociology of gender or intro to gender studies courses takes a balanced, global, intersectional approach to gender.
1) look at how concrete forms of gender, race, class, and sexual inequality operate transnationally;
2) examine the impact of globalization on local and everyday life experiences; and
3) identify how local actors re-imagine social possibilities, resist injustice, and work toward change. Integrating theory with empirical studies that are of particular interest to college students, the authors make gender concepts genuinely interesting and accessible.
