  • Description
  • Details

This handbook presents a multicultural approach to diversity in feminist psychology.

Provocative and timely, the text comprehensively discusses the cutting-edge of feminist discourse, covering major topics such as multicultural feminist theory, gender discrimination, aging, health and therapy, violence and harassment, politics and policy, and much more.

The unique quality of this book is that each contributor brings her own cultural perspective, values, and concerns to her chapter. Special emphasis is also given to the intersectionality of minority identities such as race, ethnicity, social class, sexual preference, and other socially constructed status differences among women.

Key topics discussed:
* Intimate partner violence: perspectives from ethnic groups in the United States
* Gender-transgressive sexual minorities
* HIV/AIDS among women of color and sexual minority women
* Psychological perspectives on older women, including transitions, cognitive functioning, and mental health
* Ethnicity, disordered eating, and body image
* Methodological and statistical issues in research with diverse samples
* Low-income women, women with disabilities, workers, and immigrants/refugees
