Description

This volume provides a reflexive social history of the development of the psychology of women as an academic field of research and teaching. Core areas of concern in feminist psychology are examined, including discrimination, power and social control, critique of theory and content in psychology, and epistemology. Resisting Gender outlines the stages through which the psychology of women has moved, and highlights the ongoing questions and dilemmas for the field. Rhoda Unger has been involved with the discipline as a researcher, teacher, author and leader since its inception, and is in a unique position to introduce us to, and offer her perspective on, the key debates and concerns that have driven, or been driven by, the field of the psychology of women.
