The revision of this highly successful text maintains its emphasis on intersecting inequalities and shows how the consequences of gender inequality can be compounded by racism, social class inequality, ageism, and heterosexism.*Includes updated statistics, both within the narrative and in the tables, and includes more tables in this edition summarizing more data in the form of graphs. *Expands the discussion of men and masculinities. *Includes more data on race/ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation where available. *Contains more coverage of issues concerning gender and technology, such as gender differences in computer/Internet usage, the Internet and pornography, and the Internet and violence against women. *Condenses the coverage of gender and social movements into Chapter 1 (previously in Ch. 13). *Integrates coverage on Ancestors and Neighbors: Social Constructions of Gender at Other Times, in Other Places, (previously Ch. 3), throughout the book. The book is now two chapters shorter than it was in the previous edition, per reviewers suggestions.
