A major reconsideration of culture and gender by a founder of feminist anthropology.

"[An] engaging book. . . . A fine example of the way anthropology helps us to think about ourselves."

Tanya Luhrmann, The New York Times "To have [Ortner's] brilliant writings gathered together in one volume, along with an introduction that is sure to move even further our understanding of gender, is a gift to all of us."

Nancy J. Chodorow, author of The Reproduction of Mothering
