Description
Contrary to popular opinion, "women's issues" are not exclusively for and about women, but rather, about issues that affect every individual in society. The questions raised by feminists and researchers in this fascinating anthology engage all readers in a quest for understanding how the female experience influences social, cultural, economic, and historical trends. The authors ask readers to consider: How are men and women socialized into roles of masculinity and femininity? Is it possible to raise gender-aschematic children in a gender-schematic society? How is sexual initiation different for girls than it is for boys? Are boys better than girls at math? How have working parents created a revolution on the domestic front? Is sexual identity fixed or fluid? How do gender issues play a role in the diagnosis of mental disorder? Combining both new articles and reprints, this reader compiles the rich material that makes the study of the psychology of women exciting. To promote understanding of the complexity of the female experience, the authors include a variety of approaches to the psychology of women. The readings are divided into to ten main topic headings, such as Power and Ideology, Academic and Career Advancement, Intimate Relationships, Caregiving, Women's Health, Violence against Women, and Aging -- each with an emphasis on women of diverse backgrounds. To put these readings in context, the authors include an analysis of social, cultural, and historical influences on individual psychology, and have brought to the foreground women whose lives have been historically underrepresented in the field of psychology. Psychologists, feminists, and anyone interested in issues of genderidentity and the psychology of women.
