Both Gains and Gaps: Feminist Perspectives on Women's Leisure
Karla A. Henderson
Venture Pub., Jan 1, 1996 - Social Science - 337 pages
This publication is a "book-in-progress" that elaborates on issues about women, gender, and leisure across the life span. The text is an update of Leisure of One's Own (1989) and contains 80% new, revised, and updated material. Although many gains have been made in understanding women's leisure, much remains to be learned. Both Gains and Gaps provides further information about women and the issues that surround both the gains and gaps associated with the construct we commonly call leisure. This textbook serves as an introduction to issues and questions concerning women and leisure. Building on both leisure studies and women's studies, Henderson, Bialeschki, Shaw, and Freysinger offer a social-psychological analysis of women and their leisure from feminist perspectives. No prior knowledge of women's studies or leisure studies is assumed in this definitive work.
