The Gendered Society, first Canadian edition, is an authoritative and incisive study of contemporary gender relations that challenges a common tendency to treat gender as an issue for women alone. Maintaining that gender differences are often exaggerated, the authors reveal how inequality is
the cause rather than the product of those differences. Organized into three parts, the text explores concepts of gender through a variety of disciplines while discussing how gender permeates our everyday lives as a socially constructed phenomenon. Thoroughly revised and updated, this first
Canadian edition is an engaging and comprehensive introduction to the sociological study of gender.
