Judy Root Aulette, Judith Wittner, and Kristen Barber
In Gendered Worlds, Fourth Edition, authors Judy Root Aulette, Judith Wittner, and Kristen Barber use the sociological imagination to explore gender relations throughout the world. They look at how concrete forms of gender, race/ethnicity, class, and sexual inequality operate transnationally; examine the impact of globalization on local and everyday life experiences; and identify how local actors re-imagine social possibilities, resist injustice, and work toward change. Integrating theory with empirical studies that are of particular interest to college students--including research on violence, sports, and sexuality--the authors make gender concepts genuinely interesting and accessible. They also demonstrate how students can think critically about gender, both within and beyond the classroom.
New to this Edition:
- New "Talking About" boxes in each chapter encourage students to draw on their own experiences and question their thinking
- An expanded discussion of sexuality as a component of gender in every chapter
