Synopses & Reviews
Gender Relations: Intersectionality and Beyond focuses on how gender differences and inequalities play out in the social lives of men and women throughout the life course. Theory is linked with practice through a series of case studies that highlight current research from Canada, the United States, Britain, and Australia. Through a range of theories and with attention to distinct, yet overlapping, stages of the human life course, the book illuminates how gender differences and inequalities are expressed at critical junctures of the gendered lives of women and men.
