For gender-focused courses in Psychology, Sociology, Women’s Studies, and Gender Studies.
Unlike other gender texts, Psychology of Gender focuses equally on both men and women, drawing from empirical research and conceptual discussions.
The book includes research and discussions surrounding gender in the areas of psychology, sociology, anthropology, medicine, and public health. It reviews the research from multiple perspectives, but emphasizes the implications of social roles, status, and gender-related traits, particularly for relationships and health—areas that are central to students' lives and that have a great impact on their day-to-day functioning. The text is designed for upper-level undergraduate/ graduate-level gender-focused courses in a variety of departments.
Upon completing this book, readers should be able to:
Understand the implications of gender for two broad domains of research: relationships and health
Distinguish the similarities and differences between men and women and the theories that explain any observed differences
