LibraryThing ReviewUser Review - LibraryThing
The essays in this book (the required reading for my Gender Studies course this semester) were hit and miss. But many of my problems with the text ultimately stemmed from the make-up of the class. It's a very social-science centric book, and my humanities-based professor didn't enjoy teaching from it. We also moved very slowly and skipped around, which I feel left the students without a grounding from which to work. Several of our assigned readings sent me outside of the text to gather a better understanding, and I often read outside of the assigned readings within the book, so it was worthwhile in the end, though the class abandoned the text, and started choosing other essays.
Review: The Gendered SocietyUser Review - Goodreads
Better as it progressed. Slow starter, since the beginning felt overly technical.
