Whether in the home or in the public arenas of media, work, sports, politics, art or religion, women often become embroiled as subjects in the political, social, and cultural debates in America. People on all areas of the political landscape see women in diverse and conflicting ways—as either too liberated or not liberated enough, or whether and how gender and sexual roles are rooted in either biology or culture. Battleground: Women, Gender, and Sexuality helps readers navigate contemporary issues and debates pertaining to women's lives in the United States and globally. This work examines how science and culture intertwine to influence how we think about our identities, desires, relationships, and societal roles today. Battleground: Women, Gender, and Sexuality comprises lengthy, in-depth discussions of the most timely issues that are debated in today's culture, such as, birth control, comparable worth, disability and gender, glass ceiling, immigration, plastic surgery, tattooing, and piercing, same-sex marriage, and sexual assault and sexual harrassment Each essay provides a balanced overview of these hot-button topics, and a list of works for Further Reading after each entry serves as a stepping-stone to more in-depth material for students who are writing papers or researching reports.

Sexuality is both fascinating and troubling. It seems to promise that transcendence of ourselves which is our deepest human desire, and yet it makes us painfully aware of our limits and of the supreme difficulty of finding ourselves in the process of losing ourselves. The relationship of Christianity to sexuality has been particularly troubled, but this book is an attempt to reflect on the phenomenon of sexuality from the standpoint of what is central to Christianity, that is, the view of God and of the human condition which became real in the words and in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The book tries to answer this question: if we take Christianity seriously, how do we think about our sexuality and what do we do about it? This book draws on the ethical reflections of many thinkers, and it draws on much work in psychology, but its primary focus is either that of ethics or of psychology. The book intends to be theology: the attempt to talk intelligently about God and the relationship of God to every area of human existence and especially to those aspects of life which are near the center of the human personality: and foremost among such is sexuality.
