"Issues of gender and sexuality appear in all aspects of life, including politics, work, and intimate relationships. Some are high profile, like abortion and gay marriage, while others are not as well known (e.g. women's lack of access to health care). This volume examines these issues on an historical and international basis, relating them to broad global struggles for human rights, and the result is fascinating. The editors' goals were to offer young and general interest readers a collection of sources and commentary to provoke critical thinking and provide a foundation and desire for further investigation. They succeed in every way. The volume also contains a chronology of major events associated with gender and sexuality, sections on using the volume and primary sources in general, bibliography, index, and many black-and-white illustrations. It is part of Thomson-Gale's 10-volume Social Issues Primary Sources Collection, which focuses on problems of the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. It is highly recommended for undergraduate academic libraries and public libraries."
