Summary

Originally published in 1976, Sexual Divisions and Society argues that mainstream sociology has neglected to incorporate the notion of sexual divisions as an integral part of its theoretical underpinnings. It suggests that sociology has often included women completely within the term of ‘men’, or as a part of their husbands, rather than asking how and when the relationship between the sexes is pertinent to the explanation of social structure and behaviour. The volume is composed of papers brought together from the 1974 British Sociological Association Conference on Sexual Divisions.
