Gender Through the Prism of Difference, Sixth Edition, adopts a global, transnational perspective on how race, class, and sexual diversity are central to the study of sex and gender. In contrast with other books in this area--which tend to focus on U.S. or European viewpoints--this wide-ranging anthology features many articles based on research done elsewhere throughout the world. Now in its sixth edition, the book features nineteen new readings covering compelling subjects like transgender identities and public policies, Native and Muslim women, policing and incarceration, the intersection of gender and immigration, gender and disabilities, and the #MeToo social movement.
