Today it is widely recognized that the experience of inequality depends on the intersections of gender, race, and class in each individual life. In Gender Relations in Canada Janet Siltanen and Andrea Doucet trace the way the implications of gender play out for women and men throughout the life course, from the formation of gender identity in childhood through the identity struggles of adolescence to adulthood, where gender continues to play a major role in the structure of work and family life alike. At the same time the authors underline the importance of moving beyond intersectionality as a framework for research in this area.
Janet Siltanen is a Professor, and Andrea Doucet is an Assistant Professor, in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University.
