Interdisciplinary look at women and gender issues

Thinking about Women: Sociological Perspectives on Sex and Gender introduces you to gender and how it operates in society, providing a clear-headed assessment of how the lives of both women and men have changed over the years. The text explores the social construct of gender, its ubiquitousness in modern society, and, importantly, how it intersects with other social factors: race, class, sexuality, age, religion, nationality, and others. In the 11th Edition, a major focus is put on gender in major social institutions, including the economy and the criminal justice system.
