Description

Gender in a Transitional Era addresses a range of issues relevant in current gender and sexuality studies scholarship which span many disciplines. The contributors prioritize the critical thinking that continues to support the notion that we, as a society, still have a ways to go toward full gender equality in all spheres of life. This collection positions marginal voices at the center of complex gender issues in today s society. Broad thematic topic areas include parental identities, advice, and self-help; gender performances and role expectations in media; interacting within organizational and social spaces; and tensions and negotiations on politics, health, and feminisms. Though there is still much work to be done concerning an array of gender equality issues, scholars in this collection interrogate a transitional era of gender in which changes are evident, yet challenges persist."show more

Review quote

Gender in a Transitional Era is a compendium of essays addressing some of the important topics facing women and menthatlend themselves to illuminating analysis from a feministperspective ongender, race, and class. Itupdates some older debates, expands them to reflect the currentrealities of the multiplicities of identity, nationality, and culture, and leaves readers with a forward-looking perspective on social actionin a time of ever-greater technological mediation. This collection introduces students to subjects of great political, economic, andsocietal concern and provides a platform from which deeper explorations can take place.--Sarah Stein, North Carolina State University"show more
