From the Back Cover

Find your own voice!

Highly engaging, well-researched, and balanced, Elizabeth Rider’s Second Edition of OUR VOICES takes a close look at current issues, theory, and research in the psychology of women. You will hear many voices in this text––from women of various racial and cultural backgrounds and social classes, from different sexual orientations, and voices that are young and old and also middle aged. You’ll also explore multiple perspectives on issues, so you can draw your own conclusions about the information you’re reading, and ultimately find your own voice.

Throughout the book, applications relate the material to women’s lives in a compelling, personal way. Featured studies illuminate the process of research, describe the “why” and “how” of key experiments, and introduce you to the primary literature in the field.

Key Features

  • Provides increased coverage of life-span issues throughout the text, such as older women’s relationships to spouse and friends, and their reaction to the empty nest, retirement, and the death of a spouse/partner.
  • Chapters on physical health and reproduction feature a strong psychological focus.
  • Includes expanded coverage on how the field of psychology has viewed women of color and poor women.
  • Presents new research on how mothers and fathers interact with their children and parenting styles associated with mothers and fathers.
  • Offers a detailed historical context with which to view more current developments.
  • Examines the cultural obsession with male and female differences versus similarities.
  • Covers all the important theories on how children acquire gender identity.
  • Provides insight into the impact of biology and socialization on gender identification.

About the Author

Elizabeth (Betty) Rider is Professor of Psychology and Associate Dean of the Faculty at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. After earning her degree in developmental psychology at Vanderbilt University, she taught at the University of North Carolina at Asheville for several years before moving back to her home state of Pennsylvania more than 15 years ago. She regularly teaches Psychology of Women and Developmental Psychology courses to undergraduates at an institution where student learning is the number one priority.
In addition to this text, she has co-authored a popular text on life-span human development. When not writing or teaching, this single mom devotes her energies to raising her son and working outdoors.

This book is well written and offers a great compilation of several studies associated with the female mind and body. It is a wonderful resource for research papers as well as a great study tool for any psychology class. For those who've always wanted to look deeper into the female psyche and learn more about their anatomy, this is a must have.
