Gender Transformation - Sylvia Walby

Routledge, 1997, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Previous owners' address sticker to the reverse of the upper wrapper.

First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “The answer of course is both. In this lucid and subtle investigation, Sylvia Walby, one of the world’s leading authorities on gender, shows how undoubted increases in opportunity for women in Europe and America have been accompanied by new forms of inequality. She charts changes in women’s employment, education and political representation and the complex relations between gender, class and ethnicity, between local conditions and global pressures which together determine the place of women both in the labour market and in the wider social, political and economic world of today.

Gender Transformations, the eagerly awaited succesor to Walby’s classic, Theorising Patriarchy, will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in how questions of gender remake and are remade by the social and economic conditions in which they occur..”
