Gender and Sociology Series

Series Editors: Sue Scott and Stevi Jackson, Centre for Women's Studies, University of York, UK

Gender and Sociology will bring together high quality research in the areas of gender and sociology and include work from both established scholars and early career researchers. It will include: different theories and approaches to questions of gender; debates and contemporary issues in the sociological study of gender; historical, cultural and social and political dimensions; and the relationships between continuities and change, inequalities and gender identities.

This series is aimed at an international audience of academics and students who are interested in gender across the social science disciplines but particularly in sociology.
