Jacqueline Goodman and her contributors analyze the historical and contemporary realities of the work-family nexus that shapes and is shaped by the social construction and reconstruction of gender over time and : Jacqueline Goodman.

Theoretical Perspectives on Gender. Sociological theories help sociologists to develop questions and interpret data. For example, a sociologist studying why middle-school girls are more likely than their male counterparts to fall behind grade-level expectations in math and science might use a feminist perspective to frame her research. The editor has selected a key set of essays that examine influential arguments on such central themes as (1) the origins of the gendered division of labor; (2) historical trends and economic transformations that affect and are affected by women's position in market and non market work; (3) the effects of occupational and job segregation by sex.
