A critical introduction to key theories and concerns, Gender and Women’s Studies celebrates a range of influential feminist thought on topics of race, class, ability, age, rights, and sexuality. Broad in scope, this collection features multiple genres of work and covers an array of disciplinary focuses with Indigenous, racialized, disabled, and queer voices prominent among the variety of perspectives included.
This thoroughly updated second edition contains more photos, infographics, and artworks as well as updated reflections on developments in the media and activist movements. In addition, new chapters have been added on issues surrounding sex work as labour, the politics of veiling in Canada, trans and gender queer-identities, and Indigenous sovereignty.
Concerned with the past, present, and future of gender identity and gendered representation, this remarkable anthology is perfect for use in introductory courses in gender studies and women’s studies at universities across Canada.
