Masculine and Feminine: Gender Roles Over the Life Cycle
Designed for use in courses on gender and sex roles offered in sociology, psychology, and women's studies, this book gives an organizational perspective by devoting equal coverage to men's and women's concerns in a developmental or life-cycle framework. Thorough, updated treatment of gender roles in single-parent families and among the elderly is included, plus the latest information about men and women in occupations (percentages, salaries, types of discrimination) and in politics (the gender gap, women in political elites, policy questions).
