March 2013 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Masculinity and Femininity is the first in-depth discussion of the masculinity dimension, and how it can help us to understand differences amongst cultures.

Geert Hofstede begins with a general explanation of the masculinity dimension, and discusses how it illuminates broad features of different cultures. Parts Two, Three and Four apply the dimension more specifically to gender (and gender identity), sexuality (and sexual behaviour), and religion, probably the most influential variable of all.

The book closes with a syntesizing statement about cultural values as they are linked to sexulaity, gender and religion.
