In the last decade a great deal of research has been done on women's issues, feminism, and gender as variables in social institutions. The literature dealing with women and gender continues to increase rapidly. Yet until now there has been no handbook to this growing body of research.Analyzing Gender is a major synthesis of current social science research on gender issues. This tightly edited collection of articles consolidates the current state of knowledge about the role of women in society.From a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, the contributors outline research findings relating to the issues facing women in contemporary society. Chapters are broad in scope -- and carefully examine the current state of knowledge and research.Analyzing Gender will be an essential sourcebook for research on gender, sex roles and women's studies.
