Blume, Libby Balter; Blume, Thomas W.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v65 n4 p785-94 Nov 2003
Proposes a dialectical model representing gender discourse in families. A brief review of literature in sociology, psychology, and gender studies focuses on three dialectical issues: nature versus culture, similarity versus difference, and stability versus fluidity. Deconstructing gender theories from a postmodern feminist perspective, the authors discuss agency and context in families' gender discourse. (Contains 79 references and 1 figure.) (GCP)
