The Kaleidoscope of Gender PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Kaleidoscope of Gender free pdf This integrated, comprehensive text//reader is designed to present an accessible, timely, and stimulating introduction to the sociology of gender. It can be used as a text by itself or as a supplement to other materials in courses in Sociology of Gender and Introduction to Women's Studies. Articles have been selected (1) to creatively and clearly explicate what gender is and is not, and what it means to say that gender is socially constructed- (2) to untangle and clarify the intricate ways in which gender is embedded in and defined by other systems of difference and inequality such as race, social class, sexualities, and age- (3) to illustrate the complex variations and dynamics of gender across cultures. By organizing the book around a metaphor--the kaleidoscope--the articles are integrated throughout the text and tied together by text//introductions to each chapter. This makes the book more than a collection of articles- each article fits into the metaphor and its three themes: prisms, patterns, and possibilities.
