    BELIEVING IS SEEING:: Biology as Ideology.Judith Lorber - 1993 - Gender and Society 7 (4):568-581.
    Western ideology takes biology as the cause, and behavior and social statuses as the effects, and then proceeds to construct biological dichotomies to justify the “naturalness” of gendered behavior and gendered social statuses. What we believe is what we see—two sexes producing two genders. The process, however, goes the other way: gender constructs social bodies to be different and unequal. The content of the two sets of constructed social categories, “females and males” and “women and men,” is so varied that (...)

    Using Gender to Undo Gender: A Feminist Degendering Movement.Judith Lorber - 2000 - Feminist Theory 1 (1):79-95.
    Women’s status in the Western world has improved enormously, but the revolution that would make women and men truly equal has not yet occurred. I argue that the reason is that gender divisions still deeply bifurcate the structure of modern society. Feminists want women and men to be equal, but few talk about doing away with gender divisions altogether. From a social constructionist structural gender perspective, it is the ubiquitous division of people into two unequally valued categories that undergirds the (...)

    Choice, Gift, or Patriarchal Bargain? Women's Consent to In Vitro Fertilization in Male Infertility.Judith Lorber - 1989 - Hypatia 4 (3):23-36.
    This paper explores the reasons why women who are themselves fertile might consent to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) with an infertile male partner. The reasons often given are desire to have that particular man's child, or altruism, giving a gift to the partner. Although ethically, the decision should be completely woman's prerogative, because IVF programs usually treat the couple as a unit, she may be offered few other options by the medical staff. In social terms, whether the woman is (...)

    The Dynamics of Marital Bargaining in Male Infertility.Lakshmi Bandlamudi & Judith Lorber - 1993 - Gender and Society 7 (1):32-49.
    This article provides empirical data on the dynamics of marital bargaining in the use of in vitro fertilization in male infertility and the extent of the woman's agency in trying to resolve the situation, using interview data from nine married couples and three additional wives. Although there were too few cases for demographic variation among the categories, the research did indicate that choice and altruism entailed dynamics distinguishable from patriarchal bargains, and, if there was subtle coercion, it was exerted in (...)
