Gendered Voices : Readings from the American Experience
Voices from many perspectives speak through the selections of this expansive and diverse new collection of readings for undergraduate composition courses as well as for courses in women's studies and American studies. Both the selections and the assignments emphasize how issues of ethnicity, race, and class intersect with gender. Native-, Latin-, African-, Asian- and European-American voices represent vast diversity in geographical setting, class, race,politics, sexual orientation, tone, perspective, and style, providing limitless possibilities for focusing and organizing the material. Two introductory chapters define the roles of biology and culture in shaping gender and trace the development of gender roles in America. The remaining seven chapters explore how gender is defined and experienced in our lives.
