the book is consistent to the ideas that society and culture has greatly influenced our current view of women. most studies are fairly up to date but other studies cited were irresponsibly put together. more specifically the chapter that explores the same sex sexuality of lesbians and gay males is out of date. the author uses studies cited from 1998 to say that there is no evidence that homosexuality is biologically linked. it would have been more accurate to say evidence is inconclusive but to say there is no evidence what so ever, was very upsetting.

this could have been done to keep the consistent idea that social structure affects almost everything about us, throughout the book. i believe this idea to be true, it dose affect sexuality as well but to say its the only factor in sexuality was offensive and ignores a whole world of research about the topic. its important to note the author doesn't put down any race, gender or sexual orientation.

by all means the book is still good and is good enough to be used in womens studies. this review is not meant to imply that there is any prejudice because i dont feel there is any. i just feel a good 25 percent of the text should be revamped and updated.

It is a fairly well written text and dose provide the information needed to fullfil its intended purpose. its merely needs a bit more evaulation before becoming a 5 star text.

I don't know, considering it's for "womens" studies... maybe it's supposed to be bias? Its just a little more "gyno centered" than I thought that a textbook might be

A lot of historical references regarding women. Keep dictionary handy when you read. Torture to get thru this book. Can't wait for this class to be over

I thought this would make me understand women. It did not. All it did was make me fail a college class about women. So clearly I do not understand women. If this book was intended for something else it definitely is NOT about women.

I thought there would be more sandwich recipes in this book, mainly i'm just learning about women's rights. That's fine though too.
