  • Relationships, intimacy and concepts of sexuality
  • The workplace and labour markets
  • Gender related violence and war
  • Public health, poverty and development
  • The ageing process

With examples and suggestions for further reading throughout, this text offers a perfect blend of theory and application for all those beginning a course in the field of gender, and those in related social science disciplines looking to learn more about a topic which is ever present in everyday contexts.
