This text is designed for Introduction to Gender Studies courses, Introduction to Women's Studies courses, and community colleges and universities offering an Introduction to Sociology of Gender course.
Matthews/ Beaman's Exploring Gender in Canada: A Multi-Dimensional Approach, 1st edition is an intriguing, accessible text containing informative and provocative subject matter designed to engage students without overwhelming them. Guest essays from prominent Canadian scholars working in the area, and brief chapters highlighting areas of interest, leave room for individual professors to develop their own focal points.
In addition to the basic introduction to the subject area, this text contains four sections that link to the four major levels on which gender operates in our society: individual, interactional, institutional, and sociocultural. While the focus of this book is primarily on gender in Canadian society, the authors have drawn in examples and discussion from a global perspective where appropriate. The four levels are introduced and then short subsequent chapters expand on the key issues.
