Whether in the home or in the public arenas of media, work, sports, politics, art or religion, women often become embroiled as subjects in the political, social and cultural debates in America. People on all areas of the political landscape see women in diverse and conflicting ways — as either too liberated or not liberated enough, or whether and how gender and sexual roles are rooted in either biology or culture. Battleground: Women, Gender, and Sexuality<\i> helps readers navigate contemporary issues and debates pertaining to women’s lives in the United States and globally. This work examines how science and culture intertwine to influence how we think about our identities, desires, relationships, and societal roles today.

Battleground: Women, Gender, and Sexuality<\i> comprises lengthy in-depth discussions of the most timely issues that are debated in today’s culture, such as birth control, comparable worth, disability and gender, glass ceiling, immigration, plastic surgery, tattooing, and piercing, same-sex marriage, and sexual assault and sexual harrassment.

Each essay provides a balanced overview of these hot-button topics, and a list of works for Further Reading after each entry serves as a stepping-stone to more in-depth material for students who are writing papers or researching reports.
