The author of this interdisciplinary textbook for college undergraduates, perceives from a gender perspective the social mechanisms that influence gender inequality.

The book is in four parts. The first analyzes from a cultural standpoint how the concepts of masculinity and femininity constitute a main social mechanism that influences gender inequality.

Part two considers the subtle manner in which society imposes the order of gender inequality that controls the bodies of men and women through a close relationship with the rules of patriarchy.

Part three explores how socio-economic labor gender divisions shape family and social gender roles. It also re-evaluates the traditional public/private dichotomy. The author believes that the ideology of gender division in labor is the predominant mechanism that maintains and perpetuates unequal gender relations.

Part four examines basic theories of gender studies stemming from the feminist movement and feminist theory. The final chapter focuses on the theory and methodology of gender studies as a foundation for understanding and interpreting Chinese social relationships.
