Abstract
 
Description
Well-grounded in research, this accessible book presents psychology as it has been transformed and is being transformed by women. It discusses the changes that a feminist vision of psychology has made in everything from the methods used to the topics studied. With its solid grounding in contemporary feminist scholarship, this book focuses on important issues such as violence against women, health psychology, work-family balance, development across the life-course, and sexist discrimination.Written to be reader-friendly, the book weaves a cohesive story that delivers its main points in a clear and straightforward manner. And, rather than separating womenÕs experiences by stereotyped subgroups, this book integrates the diversity of womenÕs experiences to present as inclusive a picture as possible of women and womenÕs lives. An essential reference on feminist influence in psychology for every professional in psychology and sociology. - from Amzon
