Yet there are bound to be some who it will not satisfy at all, as her passionate commitment to make the future "a better time for both the planet and for us" is undermined by this scattershot compendium.

Ann Oakley (1972) was one of the first sociologists to extend ideas about socialization to try to understand how gender is learned and how femininity and masculinity are socially constructed. Oakley started using the term gender in the early 1970s to distinguish biological sex from gender.

The main extracts in this section come from my first book,Sex, gender and society(1972), and from an update of this material published as a women’s studies textbook,Subject women(1981). These arose from my own naive inquiries during the course of a PhD on housework (see Part 2) as to why women appeared to do the bulk of the world’s work, unpaid, unrewarded and largely unrecognised.

Influential author and social scientist Ann Oakley argues that men and women have inherited and reinforce a system of gender differences that has a destructive effect on them, their shared humanity, and the planet. By showing us how every aspect of our lives is dominated by male/female power structures, she forces us to take a step back and see how and why gender inequality has thrown our society out of balance.

In Gender on Planet Earth, Oakley argues that the persistence of traditional gender values prevents us from leading more ethical and humane lives. Governed by "delusional systems" such as psychoanalysis and sociobiology, we assume that the imbalance of the sexes is the inevitable consequence of our genes, psyches, and unchangeable economic motives. Drawing from a broad array of literature, Oakley combines personal narrative with social commentary and eye-opening statistics to provide a provocative account of gender today.
