Encyclopedia of Gender and Society go! Available Online Available in Print Multimedia Resource

“Edited by O’Brien (sociology, Seattle Univ.), this work contains contributions from almost 300 international scholars on many aspects of gender as it relates to society and on society as it relates to gender. Including both an A-to-Z list of entries as well as a reader’s guide to assist in locating entries on related topics, it is a user-friendly reference guide, as it utilizes subheadings within entries, guide words on both pages, and white space. Covering arts, popular culture, sports, biographies, crime and criminal justice, economics, environment, ecology, politics, public policy, social movements, science, research, education, and technology, the two volumes contain over 450 entries ranging in length from half a page to several pages, discussing such mundane topics as contraception and infertility as well as sensitive issues like compulsory heterosexuality and sadomasochism.”
