A Twenty-first Century Approach to Teaching Social Justice: Educating for Both Advocacy and Action defines social justice in terms of the marginalization of groups including women, people of color, queers, working class/poor individuals, and individuals with disabilities. Sixteen original chapters provide new and insightful perspectives on topics ranging from global transgender awareness and action to religious pluralism. Essential reading for anyone concerned about the state of equality in our society, this book will provide undergraduate and graduate students, as well as other readers, with an awareness of various social justice issues and how to develop strategies for social change.
