Abstract:

"What is the difference between sex and gender? What is the impact of gender-role stereotypes on our lives, our relationships and the world? Do we need to think beyond two category models of sex and gender? What is the future of gender? What does it mean to you Gender impacts on every aspect of our lives. It is often taken for granted and yet it shapes the way we think about ourselves, about others and our place in the world. The Psychology of Gender offers a critical and accessible introduction to the psychology of gender by drawing on biological, historical and cultural perspectives. It considers the impact of gender roles on the individual, relationships and society in general, and addresses the 'dilemmas' we have regarding gender in a postmodern world. Topics covered include gender roles, sex differences, gender stereotypes, transgender and cisgender identities, and androgyny. The book also offers a unique perspective by examining the impact of storytelling from religious cosmologies, fairy tales, and science fiction which can be used to make sense of the world of gender. The Psychology of Gender offers a platform for further exploration, tackling hidden assumptions and pop-psychology myths, and offering insights into how we make sense of our gendered world. It arrives at a new psychology of gender that emphasises relationships and helps us to understand our own gender identity and that of those around us."--Provided by publisher.
