    This is an excellent primer for anyone who needs a quick overview of gender issues, theories, and scholars. Broken into well-organized sections ordered alphabetically, it provides a lot of information in a manageable, efficient manner, making concept easily accessible. Also a good option if you're looking to delve deeper into one of the topics because plenty of important names in the relevant fields are referred to.

    As a Gender Studies graduate I have found this book very useful as an introduction to certain concepts and topics which I was not that familiar with. It's very useful if you are looking for concise explications and clear and reliable definitions for example, for essays. I kept going back to it for my coursework because it also provides further reading for each topic and the bibliography itself is a great place to start your research on whatever the topic related to gender/feminism.
