9780072997859: A New Psychology Of Women: Gender, Culture, And Ethnicity

In this insightful, provocative text, Hilary Lips lively narrative focuses on diversity without losing sight that the world is an interdependent community and what happens anywhere is likely to be relevant to many of us. Sensitive to the limitations of her own cultural perspective--that of a feminist social psychologist, a middle-class white woman who grew up in Canada and now teaches and writes in the United States--Lips draws from scholarly research outside the U.S. to present a global perspective on the psychology of women. She creatively exposes readers to the role of culture in shaping women s experiences, knowledge, and understanding and includes multicultural beliefs and findings. Much of the detailed coverage stems from broader topics that include female male differences, how girls are socialized throughout childhood and adolescence, how early messages are translated into later behavior, how women are treated in the workplace, how being female affects physical and mental health, and how issues affecting women change as they transition to middle and old age. Each chapter includes a profile of a woman who helped shape psychology to illustrate the diverse perspectives that have constructed our understanding. Also included are learning activities, suggestions for making social change, discussion questions, key terms, and suggestions for additional reading and Web resources.

Product Description:

This text begins with the premise that everything we think we know about human beings is shaped and limited by our own culture and experience. Its aim is to show students how gender-related expectations interact with other cultural assumptions and stereotypes, as well as with social and economic conditions, to affect women’s experiences and behavior. The text also describes the ways in which women’s lives differ between cultures. Featuring more coverage of diversity within the U.S. culture, the thoroughly updated third edition is accompanied by an updated online edition of Cheryl Rickabaugh’s Sex and Gender workbook.

Product Description:

This is the first psychology of women textbook to present an in-depth introduction to the diversity of women in cross-cultural perspective. Using a narrative approach, the text describes the ways in which cultures, including American culture, shape women’s experiences. The text focuses on the diversity and the commonality of women’s experiences through research carried out by scholars outside the United States, or outside the mainstream within the United States.
