In this volume, gender serves as a general framework for analyzing the ways people think about mathematical performance, language, self-concept, social categories, and methods and ways of knowing and creating knowledge. A distinguished group of authors shows how various forces in language, family practices, and education reinforce differentiation among the sex roles. This volume attempts to bridge this gap between difference and equality by revitalizing and reinterpreting the concept of gender differences. Gender and Thought places research on women and gender at the heart of many important areas of scholarly inquiry.
