Carved Flesh / Cast Selves: Gendered Symbols and Social Practices
Bloomsbury Academic, Jan 6, 1993 - Social Science - 297 pages
This volume, the first comprehensive overview of Scandinavian cross-cultural research on gender issues in the English language, addresses fundamental analytical issues currently debated within international feminist anthropology and beyond. Offering examples from a wide range of ethnographic settings, the essays show that gender comprises far more than sexual relationships: it takes on political significance insofar as it influences the distribution of resources and access to public and domestic spheres, to knowledge and to power.
