    A classic by a revered scholar

    This is an essential text for anyone researching or writing anything Gender-related. Students will find the reading strangely enjoyable. Dr. Woods' voice is easily heard, and the more students identify with the material, the more they like both the text and the study of this subject. It never fails that halfway through a term I get several e-mail about how much students like the book! Dr. Woods is a compliment to the human race in her many successful attempts at open, unbiased work.
