In Gender: The basics, Hilary M. Lips explores the influence of cultural, historical, biological, psychological and economic factors on the construction of gender. Locating her research in the widely held perspective that gender is dependent on and determined by more than merely biological sex, Lips considers the interaction between gender and a variety of concepts or areas, including
- relationships, intimacy and concepts of sexuality
- the workplace and labour markets
- gender-related violence and war
- public health, poverty and development
- the aging process.
