About this item

Sociologists, psychologists, and other academics from the US and Vietnam present seven essays in honor of feminist psychologist Sandra Bem. They explore institutional intersections between gender and family, educational settings, the labor market, and social services, considering Bem’s conception of gender as a central organizing feature of society and viewing gender as an outcome and agent of determination. They discuss the developmental social psychology of masculinity and femininity; the career choices of young Russian women; influences on occupational paths of mid-career women in Vietnam; the gendered ideas of family that inform social service providers’ interactions with clients; the expectations of college students about career and family balance; and the influence of gender norms and heteronormativity on leisure activities, particularly drinking behaviors in college (with application of the Bem Sex Roles Inventory) and traditional gender roles in romance novels. They interpret their research findings through Bem’s “lenses of gender” and address androcentrism, biological essentialism, and polarization. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution.
