About the Book

Designed to show that differences among men and women are more significant than the differences between them, this collection of classic and contemporary essays provides a detailed, engaging, and altogether current study of gender. Using the biological arguments surrounding gender as a starting point, the collection leads readers through an examination of gender's cultural and social constructions; the interconnections between gender and the body, sexuality and violence; and the impact of gender on relationships, family, media, the classroom, and the workplace. Focusing on Canadian themes and scholars, The Gendered Society Reader, second Canadian edition, is a comprehensive and timely volume for studying gender in this country.
