Summary

In this groundbreaking First Edition, Mary Crawford presents a framework for understanding how the lives of all people are shaped by gender. Instead of presenting gender as a collection of individual traits, Transformations presents gender as a social system that is used to categorize people and is linked to power and status. The readable and lively style, combined with a balance of classical research studies and current theories, provide an engaging overview of the psychology of women.
