Summary

Gender and Identity brings a new perspective to our gender studies list, and to the study of gender in Canada, by looking at gender construction through the lens of identity. Using case studies and solid theoretical analysis, the book explores relationships between gender and sexuality, religion, race and ethnicity, parenting, education, work, and sport, linking these discussions to how identity is formed and expressed. In the course of the text, the authors show that gender is essentially the social performance of our sex identity, hardly fixed and, indeed, subject to change over time. This addition to our gender list will use the latest in gender theory to make explicit the natural links between gender and identity, providing a refreshing and contemporary experience for students.
