GENDER AND SOCIAL THEORY Summary


GENDER AND SOCIAL THEORY by Mary Evans


* What is the most significant aspect of current literature on gender?
* How does this literature engage with social theory?
* How does the recognition of gender shift the central arguments of social theory?

We know that gender defines and shapes our lives. The question addressed by Gender and Social Theory is that of exactly how this process occurs, and what the social consequences, and the consequences for social theory, might be. The emergence of feminist theory has enriched our understanding of the impact of gender on our individual lives and the contemporary social sciences all recognise gender differentiation in the social world. The issue, however, which this book discusses is the more complex question of the extent to which social theory is significantly disrupted, disturbed or devalued by the fuller recognition of gender difference. We know that gender matters, but Mary Evans examines whether social theory is as blind to gender as is sometimes argued and considers the extent to which a greater awareness of gender truly shifts the concerns and conclusions of social theory. Written by an author with an international reputation, this is an invaluable text for students and an essential reference in the field.
