Book News Annotation:
Contributors draw on feminist analysis of psychology to look at the assumptions which underlie both psychology and feminism, examining subjects such as sexual abuse; menstruation; feminist therapy; the regulation of mothering; the gendering of the caring professions; and women's safety. They explore themes of difference and power; the politics of research; the cultural maleness of psychological theory and teaching; and the relations between race and gender. Of interest to students in psychology, gender, and women's studies.
