Re: Gender and World History

I agree with what Kara has said already, and would like to expand on a few of her points. First, though, I think that perhaps because gender is constructed contextually, specific to the societies and cultures in which norms develop, it has been difficult for some to see how gender history could be done as world history. However, as Kara has pointed out, prioritizing gender as a lens, as opposed to needing its construction to be the same across the globe, is a way forward.
