Gender & Family
Gender plays a crucial role in a wide range of social phenomena. Sociologists of gender explore the construction of gender roles, the intersectional links between gender, status, and inequality. Scholars focusing on family, research it as a social institution with gendered structures and outcomes for health and social functioning.
