This extraordinary text offers fresh insight on the psychology of women. 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.
