Key Concepts in Gender Studies is testament to the interest, energy and dynamism of feminism today. Now in a revised second edition, it must have been incredibly tough to set the limit at 50, but Jane Pilcher and Imelda Whelehan have done it again: produced a book that is lively, important and accessible. With entries that cover key concepts, historical terms, theoretical arguments, and activism from Malala to SlutWalk to transgender, this book offers an excellent introduction to debates in contemporary gender studies.
Really useful text with clear chapters and relevance to subject matter. I have placed this on our reading list as I feel it is very user friendly to offer wider perspective on gender discussions.
Fantastic for introductory sociology.
A breakdown of the key terms used in Gender studies, it is easily accessible and provides a detailed and insightful overview.
