Gender, Sexuality and Power

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

A collection of original articles by well-known feminists first presented at the 1989 Conference of the British Sociological Association. The collection makes a major contribution to our understanding of the ways in which men control and subordinate women in the domestic and the public sphere. The contributors report on original research that demonstrates the ways in which men exercise control over girls and women in their daily lives, in the home, at school, at work and in the courts. Women are seen to resent and challenge male power, but, the institutionalization of male power is shown to mitigate against women taking control over their own lives.
