        A survey of American publishing has found that it is blindingly white and female, with 79% of staff white and 78% women. Multicultural children’s publisher Lee & Low Books surveyed staff at Book Overview In Manhood Acts Michael Schwalbe offers a new perspective on the social construction of manhood and its relationship to male domination. Schwalbe argues that study of masculinity has lost touch with its feminist roots and has been seduced by the politically safe notion of 'multiple masculinities'.

      The focus of hooks' writing has been the intersectionality of race, capitalism, and gender, and what she describes as their ability to produce and perpetuate systems of oppression and class domination. She has published more than 30 books and numerous scholarly articles, appeared in documentary films, and participated in public : Gloria Jean Watkins, Septem (age . In The Gendered Society, Michael Kimmel examines a wealth of empirical research and popular conceptions about gender differences to argue from a sociological perspective that “gender difference is the result of gender inequality, not its cause” (p. xi).The sociological aspect of his argument is founded on the idea that “the social institutions of our world — workplace, family.

      This book aims to begin an eco-centered, eco-feminist informed discussion about the ways in which our relationship to “nature” is bound up with gender, patriarchy, and violence. Ecofeminist scholars study the interconnections between gendered relationships of domination among humans, between humans, and between humans, nonhumans, and the earth. The usual definition of dominance is an individual's preferential access to resources over another. Clearly, if males dominate females, it is to restrict mating opportunities for other males. A species in which the males consistently deprived the females, and hence their young, of food resources would be at a disadvantage in evolutionary terms.
