Introduction to Gender offers a broad, multidisciplinary introduction to the themes and debates within gender studies, interweaving theory with application. Comprehensive and highly topical in its scope it explores gender through the disciplines of history, sociology, social policy, anthropology, psychology, politics, pedagogy and geography. The authors also interrogate the gendered aspects of 8 issues including health and illness, work and leisure, and culture and media to provide a truly interdisciplinary insight into the role of gender in every aspect of life.
Each chapter highlights the importance of studies on masculinity alongside a substantial body of feminist work, offering a genuinely integrated and cutting-edge investigation of gender studies.
Introduction to Gender is an essential introductory textbook for Gender Studies across the disciplinary spectrum, particularly in Sociology, Women’s Studies and Men’s Studies, as well as more broadly across the Social Sciences and humanities.
