This extensive Research Handbook surveys historical and contemporary patterns within research on the sociology of gender. It clarifies key definitions and examines influential factors such as race, age, and occupation.

Introductory chapters provide significant foundational scope for research on the sociology of gender. Following this, a diverse array of contributors present insights into important and emerging concepts such as femininities, masculinities, intersex identities, sexuality, and transnational feminisms. Within the Research Handbook, gender is explored on multiple levels, from individual to institutional, and it ultimately paints a comprehensive picture of the sociology of gender that crosses continents and develops an inclusive perspective.

This Research Handbook is beneficial to students of sociology and social policy, as well as those studying gender within other disciplines such as business and management. Researchers and academics looking for contemporary analyses will also find this to be an important resource.
