Feminism and Anthropology
Anthropological studies--even those describing women's roles--usually reflect a male-dominated model of the world. Moore argues that feminist anthropology, emphasizing the construction of differences and the relation of gender to class, race, culture, and history, has the potential to address important theoretical issues in both fields.
