about this item
Illustrating the experiences of contemporary women, this book of original research essays points to recent challenges in the ongoing gender revolution—and to women’s resilience. Women living at the intersection of varying social categories (race, ethnicity, class, age, sexuality, and marital status) face unique consequences in today’s world of ascendant inequality. What are the consequences for 21st century women? How do these consequences--setbacks, punishments, or barriers--differ for women of distinctly different backgrounds? How do diverse women resist inequality? What are the necessary components of a new gender revolution and solutions to growing inequality?
