    1. This was the text book for my first Gender and Women's Studies course at the University of Arizona. The semester just ended and I have to say, everything in this book was insightful, well researched and highly educational. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to develop their understanding of systemic/structural violence and intersectionality.K.

    2. It's a collection of essays and articles, some new and some older, some well-known and some new to me. Most feel timely, not dated and it's organized into sections, with some introductory remarks. I'm using in for an intro to gender class, and so far it's working quite well. Introduces readers to a wide range of topics within gender studies, and from diverse perspectives and research methods. It doesn't cover historical analysis and social movements as well, but hey, can't do everything.
