This groundbreaking text presents a framework for understanding how the lives of all people are shaped by gender. Instead of presenting gender as a collection of individual traits, Transformations presents gender as a social system that is used to categorize people and is linked to power and status. Mary Crawford's readable and lively style, and her presentation of a balance of classic and cutting-edge research, provide an engaging overview of the psychology of women and gender.
