This text begins with the premise that everything we think we know about human beings is shaped and limited by our own culture and experience. Its aim is to show students how gender-related expectations interact with other cultural assumptions and stereotypes, as well as with social and economic conditions, to affect womenâ€™s experiences and behavior. The text also describes the ways in which womenâ€™s lives differ between cultures. Featuring more coverage of diversity within the U.S. culture, the thoroughly updated third edition is accompanied by an updated online edition of Cheryl Rickabaughâ€™s Sex and Gender workbook.
