Summary "This edited volume of 13 original empirical chapters provides new insight into the uneven and stalled nature of the gender revolution in the United States in the 21st century. Organized in two parts, the book documents the influence of gender as a social institution as it intersects with other core social institutions and other key forms of inequality and highlights specific policy interventions needed to facilitate greater gender equality. An introductory chapter situates contemporary understanding of gender inequality into the broader theoretical landscape on gender and intersectionality. The chapters in the first part of the book, Changing and Unchanging Institutions, assess the gender revolution in society's core institutions: the family, higher education, the workplace, religion, the military, and sports. These chapters assess progress toward gender equality and the policies that are needed to promote equality. The second part of the book, Gender Politics and Policies, focuses on arenas where gender politics are frequently at play as well as specific examples of policy- and practice-oriented approaches to reducing gender inequality: political and economic leadership, work-family integration policies, health, immigration, globalization, and sexuality. The volume closes with a summary of specific policy implications for the community, organizational, and federal levels derived from the book's empirical chapters."--Provided by publisher.
