Gender & Society: Table Of Contents, Volume 30, No. 6

GENDER & SOCIETY, Vol. 30 No. 6
Read this issue on SAGE: http://gas.sagepub.com/content/current.

In this issue, our authors delve into the concept of “gendered geographies of struggle,” as articulated by Manisha Desai, the 2015 SWS Feminist lecturer. Lan Ahn Hoang takes us into the lives of Vietnamese migrant mothers and their struggle with moral expectations of motherhood. Eileen M. Otis illustrates the labor that goes into constructing the “correctly” gendered Chinese worker in a transnational hotel. Christie Sennott and Nicole Angotte capture how living in an AIDS epidemic in South Africa alters the ways in which sexuality is constructed. Finally, Katie Ann Hasson makes clear the ways in which the embodiment of menstruation is in flux through the efforts of government agencies and drug companies. Although the contexts differ, this issue represents how gender is at the core of so many issues of control and change.
