Publisher Comments:

This is a best-selling text for Psychology of Women, Sex and Gender, or Sex Roles undergraduate courses offered by Psychology departments. Known for its engaging, never oversimplified style, Women and Gender features an integrated thematic organization synthesized in the final chapter. The authors, who are well-known, active scholars in the field, offer a feminist perspective--advocating basic equality of women and men socially, economically, and politically--while objectively reporting research findings.
