A New Psychology of Women: Gender, Culture, and Ethnicity

In this insightful, provocative text, Hilary Lips lively narrative focuses on diversity without losing sight that the world is an interdependent... community and what happens anywhere is likely to be relevant to many of us. Sensitive to the limitations of her own cultural perspective--that of a feminist social psychologist, a middle-class white woman who grew up in Canada and now teaches and writes in the United States--Lips draws from scholarly research outside the U.S. to present a global perspective on the psychology of women. She creatively exposes readers to the role of culture in shaping women s experiences, knowledge, and understanding and includes multicultural beliefs and findings. Much of the detailed coverage stems from broader topics that include female male differences, how girls are socialized throughout childhood and adolescence, how early messages are translated into later behavior, how women are treated in the workplace, how being female affects physical and mental health, and how issues affecting women change as they transition to middle and old age. Each chapter includes a profile of a woman who helped shape psychology to illustrate the diverse perspectives that have constructed our understanding. Also included are learning activities, suggestions for making social change, discussion questions, key terms, and suggestions for additional reading and Web resources.
