Action and Analysis: Readings in Sociology of Gender challenges readers to explore gender from varied perspectives within a sociological context. For example, the text asks: How is equality defined? Have women achieved equality? Are gender differences rooted in biology?Action and Analysis: Readings in Sociology of Gender is structured to follow the development and history of Canadian women's movements. By examining the major theories and issues associated with each period, readers will appreciate how improvements to the status of women have not been the result of a natural and inevitable progression of humanity but rather the result of long-term struggles that continue today.
