9780415737845: Gender, Sex, and Politics: In the Streets and Between the Sheets in the 21st Century

Gender, Sex, and Politics: In the Streets and Between the Sheets in the 21st Century includes twenty-seven chapters organized into five sections: Gender, Sexuality and Social Control; Pornography; Sex and Social Media; Dating, Desire, and the Politics of Hooking Up; and Issues in Sexual Pleasure and Safety. This anthology presents these topics using a point-counterpoint-different point framework. Its arguments and perspectives do not pit writers against each other in a binary pro/con debate format. Instead, a variety of views are juxtaposed to encourage critical thinking and robust conversation. This framework enables readers to assess the strengths and shortcomings of conflicting ideas. The chapters are organized in a way that will challenge cherished beliefs and hone both academic and personal insight. Gender, Sex, and Politics is ideal for sparking debates in intro to women’s and gender studies, sexuality, and gender courses.

Review:

This exciting new book is essential for understanding sexuality and gender in the 21st century. Topics range widely, from sexting to sexual assault. Many chapters are deeply personal, but with broader social implications. This book will stimulate animated conversation and deep thinking; it is one of the most important books on gender and sexuality in the past 30 years.

-Tom Digby, Philosophy, Springfield College, and author of Love and War: How Militarism Shapes Sexuality and Romance

This sparkling book challenges us to pursue fresh critical thinking on feminist issues of exploitation and empowerment, pointing out how we can use constructive dissent rather than destructive disagreement -- a great addition to the canon.

-Loretta Ross, Former National Coordinator, SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective

In our insanely fast-paced, Twitter-trigger world, discussion of sexuality and gender too often consists solely of snarky knee-jerk statements that do nothing to contest dominant thinking. These essays, on the other hand, invite us to think and rethink about power, and for the best reason of all: so that we can equalize it. If you care about gender, sex, and politics, this book is for you.

- Leora Tanenbaum, author of I Am Not a Slut: Slut-Shaming in the Age of the Internet

This is a must read for academic and practical alike and should be in every college sociology and psychology course. The first chapter "Hollaback!" is an eye opener and makes me want to join the movement. The book goes on to unveil many truths we must all face.

-Kristin Beck, US Navy SEAL, Candidate for US Congress 2016

Forty years after the sex wars first captured popular imagination, Shira Tarrant makes it brilliantly clear that sex wars matter anew. In this edgy collection of truth-tellers, contributors invite readers to open their minds, hearts, and conversations. They redefine sexual literacy and challenge the very notion of taboo. Bridging theory, practice, and competing perspectives, the book unsettles and entices. As with the best in gender studies, it’s sure to hit a nerve.

-Deborah Siegel, PhD, author of Sisterhood, Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild

Tarrant and the 27 contributors show how relevant gender is in our daily lives ― from online dating to the experience of walking down the street – and the format makes each chapter easy to digest and ponder while the discussion questions can help guide either internal debate or a classroom discussion.
