Synopsis: Approaches American gender through and historical and multicultural framework. This text seeks to challenge students to consider that addressing gender inequality in America involves not just activism or new laws and policies, but new modes of throught, a rethinking of our deepest, taken-for-granted and premises about the world.
From the Back Cover: Stone, Linda and McGee, Nancy P., Gender and Culture in America Designed for anthropology courses in gender and culture, and for sociology or history courses that cover gender in American society, this lively new book uses an historical framework to address gender in America in terms of a set of dominant cultural themes. This book shows how these themes both fluctuate over time and are responded to in different ways by various ethnic groups and social classes. Defines and illustrates basic concepts in anthropology and gender issues which frame the book's coverage of gender in America. Relates gender in America to dominant cultural themes including individualism, American religious traditions, the double sexual standard, and American constructions of motherhood, encouraging students to take a new critical look at mainstream American cultural values concerning gender. Offers coverage of gender in relation to American ethnic diversity and with respect to intersections between gender, ethnicity, and class. Includes the findings of the authors' original research on gender on the American college campus, based on interview with and surveys of students on several campuses. For professionals who would like to better understand gender in greater depth.
