Blurb A one-of-a-kind text designed to launch readers into a thoughtful encounter with gender issues Rather than providing definitive answers about gender, this unique book exposes readers to new material that will lead them to question their assumptions. The author uses both historical and cross-cultural approaches - as well as a focus on intersectionality and transgender issues - to help students understand the socially constructed nature of gender. Debunking ideas of what is normal and abnormal, this provocative book explores the core theories and topics of the course, including the gender of sexuality, the gender of friendship and dating, the gender of media and popular culture, and the gender of politics and power. Questioning Gender is essential reading for students of the sociology of gender in particular, and anyone exploring gender, sexuality and diversity across the social sciences more generally.
