"This provocative volume challenges mainstream ideas about personality and psychopathology that are narrow in perspective, regressively biological, or inattentive to context. Instead, it gives emphasis to relationship, identities, multiple influences, and different ways of knowing to build theories that are relevant to diverse groups. Gender and culture matter, in both theory and practice! Calling into question the pathologizing of distress and difficulty, the authors reexamine human resilience and experience in order to honor and help in ways that are liberating and relevant. This book is a 'must' for graduate-level courses on feminism and theories of human behavior."--Jean Lau Chin, EdD, ABPP, CEO Services, Newton, MA
"This book is at the cutting edge of the field of feminist psychology, indeed at the cutting edge of the newest developments in psychological theory. It offers critique as well as new avenues for the development of theory and research. The editors have assembled a group of outstanding theoreticians and practitioners, selecting authors who are both knowledgeable and creative. The book will be an excellent addition to the reading lists of graduate courses in the psychology of women and personality theory, and an invaluable reference for feminist scholars."--Oliva M. Espin, PhD, Department of Women's Studies, San Diego State University
