Main Description
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.
Main Description
Today it is widely recognized that the experience of inequality depends on the intersections of gender, race, and class in each individual life. In Gender Relations in Canada Janet Siltanen and Andrea Doucet trace the way the implications of gender play out for women and men throughout the life course, from the formation of gender identity in childhood through the identity struggles of adolescence to adulthood, where gender continues to play a major role in the structure of work and family life alike. At the same time the authors underline the importance of moving beyond intersectionality as a framework for research in this area.
