Gender issues are social issues. The "Gender & Society" series publishes outstanding academic contributions documenting the impetus that women's and gender studies have given to the social and cultural sciences. In addition, central contributions from international gender studies are published in this book series in German translation. The book series "Gender & Society" is published by Springer VS, Wiesbaden.
The handbook provides a systematic overview of the state of gender research. It links disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches and opens up a wide range of perspectives on the research field. The contributions of gender researchers from various disciplines span the breadth of the research and science field. This makes the debates, analyses and developments in German-language and international gender studies clear.
