This book investigates the complex strands that inextricably link gender and power relations, demonstrating how gender is constructed through the practices of power.
The contributors argue that `female and `male are shaped not only at the micro-level of everyday social interaction but also at the macro-level where social institutions control and regulate the practice of gender. Power/Gender explores: how theorizing on power is affected when gender is taken into account; post-Foucauldian theory of gender and power; whether it is possible to separate gender and power; the connections between gender and the practice of power in political contexts, and how these connections work in the specific contexts of womens lives; and whether the construction of sex or gender is an expression of power relations.

We are Rated Excellent on Trustpilot
Here's what you say about us...

`A powerful collection... All 11 chapters in the volume share the understanding that gender is a social product and constituted within a particular set of power relations... The book has an excellent, lengthy introduction, making it particularly well-suited for classroom use... the chapters are well written and each can stand on its own or be used in connection with other chapters in the volume. Chapters from the book could also be used as supplementary readings. This volume is well suited for upper division and graduate courses in such areas as social relations, sociology, psychology, women's studies, organizational behavior and social work' - Contemporary Psychology


`The essays on theory contribute to the feminist analysis of gender and power by focusing on the connection between gendered domination and resistance, and the empirical studies demonstrate the value of this insight for analyzing women's power to resist gendered hierarchies' - Feminist Collections
