Gender and Families uses images from popular culture and events from everyday lives to explore how families and gender are mutually produced and inseparably linked. Author Scott Coltrane teaches gender in an accessible and compelling manner to a wide array of students by weaving discussions of racial differences, ethnicity, and social class into every chapter. Coltrane also includes women and men as both topic and audience in the central chapters of the book. Ideal for use in a gender course, or as a supplement in family, introductory sociology, or social inequality classes.

He is a refreshingly clear and engaging writer who uses popular culture effectively to illuminate the theoretical connections between gender inequality and family life. (Taylor, Verta Signs)
