Summary
"This anthology focuses on women and men in the United States and the multiple identities that comprise the lives of individuals across gender. Drawing from a wide range of sources - including research articles, essays, and personal narratives - Estelle Disch has chosen accessible, engaging, and provocative readings that represent a plurality of perspectives and experiences. By providing this multidimensional view, Disch helps students see how gender operates across numerous categories including race, sexual orientation, class, age, and disability."--BOOK JACKET
