Front Cover
McGraw-Hill, 1992 - Feminism - 706 pages
Written by two scholars in the feminist community, this book takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the psychology of women. By supplementing its strong base of psychological theory and research with sociological, anthropological and historical material, the text attempts to present diverse and thorough consideration of female experience. This book also emphasizes the diversity of women's lives. Aspects of race, class and sexual orientation are integrated into every chapter. This book should be of interest to the psychology of women course offered in psychology, sociology and women's studies departments.
