This unique book is a collection of previously unpublished essays written for undergraduates by experienced teachers and leading experts in the field of Psychology of Women. These favorite lectures are designed as a reader to be paired with a Psychology of Women textbook. The lectures are written in an informal manner: the authors speak to students directly and on the student’s level and address questions that students often ask. The "lectures" cover key topics within the psychology of women course and the general women's studies curriculum. Some lectures describe the author’s personal experience; some present new data. All were prepared specifically for this book. Seven of the 24 lectures are new to this edition. The editors provide a preface addressed to both students and professors that explains how the book is intended to be used. The text also includes an introduction that discusses the philosophy and aims of feminist psychology, and how the book fits into that framework.
