Week in Review
You can currently access the new volume of Gender & Society, as well as a number of book reviews through their Online First system. Of particular interest among the articles is this one on gendered homophobia women in the male-dominated field of construction face, and this one on the relationship between compulsory heterosexuality and women’s experience of sexual violence. Among the book reviews, Andrea Doucet reviews Superdads: How Fathers Balance Work and Family in the 21st Century, by Gayle Kaufman.
