This textbook will take a regional approach to examining gendered lives from a social science perspective (primarily anthropological). Chapters will highlight individual contributor’s research, contextualizing their findings within specific geographic regions. Chapters will also feature short project/people profiles that highlight the work of community or political leaders, non-governmental organizations, or local projects that address gender related issues in a specific location.
