This interdisciplinary, multicultural text-reader provides an introduction to women's studies by examining U.S. women's lives in a global context and across categories of race-ethnicity, class, sexuality, disability, and age. Substantial chapter introductions provide updated statistical information and explanations of key concepts and ideas as a context for the readings. Each chapter includes "Questions to Frame Your Reading" and "Suggestions for Taking Action" to help students link their knowledge and understanding to their own lives and to apply it to the world around them..
