This text takes an analytic approach to understanding theories, research, policies, and practices with their affect on men and women.
Engendering Psychology¿s treatment of issues is based solidly on scientific evidence, and presented in a balanced manner. The text combines a developmental and topical approach. Denmark, Rabinowitz, and Sechzer explore the concept of gender as a social construction across the lines of race, ethnicity, class, age, and sexual orientation, pulling from the exciting new scholarship that has emerged over the last few years. Thoughtful discussion questions emphasize critical thinking skills, as well as encourage students to open a dialogue with both their professors and their peers.
This text will help readers understand the concept of gender as a social construct in contrast to the concept of sex, which denotes biological. Upon completing this text, readers will have a deeper understanding of women and the knowledge that woman is a diverse and multifaceted category.
This text enlightens without being overwhelming.
