This is a comprehensive introduction to sex and gender theories, research, and issues, focusing on social psychological and feminist perspectives. The book examines the similarities and differences between women and men, where that knowledge comes from, and how that knowledge may itself be shaped and limited by cultural perceptions. The text is organized into three primary themes: Part I provides background to stereotypes, theories, and research; Part II is focused on biological and psychological dimensions; Part III examines sex and gender in social relationships.
