This textbook introduces key feminist concepts and analytical frameworks used in the interdisciplinary Women, Gender, Sexualities field. It unpacks the social construction of knowledge and categories of difference, processes and structures of power and inequality, with a focus on gendered labor in the global economy, and the historical development of feminist social movements. The book emphasizes feminist sociological approaches to analyzing structures of power, drawing heavily from empirical feminist research.
Whether or not you connect with this new character of Kang the Conqueror will determine whether you will enjoy the rest of Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Jonathan Majors gives him the charm that can earn someone's sympathy, yet at the same time, an intimidating, menacing presence which makes him an effectively terrifying adversary. Clues are aplenty here that we will be seeing Kang many times in this current MCU phase 5. This film is just his introduction.

This short text (135 pages) can easily be paired with a reader or selected articles and videos. The authors acknowledge that it is an introduction which briefly covers most of the topics and concepts typically taught in a WGSS course. The authors are sociologists and the book maintains a sociological perspective throughout, making it ideal for an interdisciplinary (WGSS) course or a disciplinary (sociology) course. It is missing a few ideas that I would have liked, for example West and Zimmerman's "Doing Gender" which was a foundational article in the discipline, a discussion of the "Other," Collins' notion of "controlling images," and Hoschchild's "second shift." A brief survey of the three main sociological theories (Conflict, Structural Functionalism, and Symbolic Interactionism) would have been helpful for a sociology course but distracting for a WGSS course; it does do a great job with essential sociological terms. I would have also like to have seen a little more emphasis on the historical constructions of gender and sexuality and a little more on queer theory. I was thrilled, however, to see many concepts like multiple masculinities included. Finally, the text is fully intersectional along the lines of race, gender, sexuality, social/economic class, and ability/disability.
The text is consistent in its use of intersectionality as a framework. The text introduces and applies the work of feminist scholars throughout, allowing for a consistent exploration and application of intersectional feminist scholarship and praxis.

The book is quite comprehension, but it lacks depth and case studies to help students understand the significance of and context for terms introduced. It needs to be supplemented with more detailed work on ideas introduced. It does what it does very well, but instructors should expect to use this text as a foundation they must build on to give students a comprehensive introduction to the field.
The text can be used flexibly to meet the needs of different courses and course designs. I also see this used in introductory sociology courses, perhaps even introductory literature courses; although not in its entirety. The text does a very good job introducing key ideas that can be used to shape conversations.
I think this is a significant resource for instructors teaching introductory gender and sexuality studies courses. It will also be useful for those teaching sociology, literature, and other cultural texts.
For an intro level, t
