This book alerts readers to the fact that women's experiences are extremely diverse—even among women of the same class, race, sexual orientation, and religious group. It presents a non-Eurocentric perspective of the psychology of women, and treats women as the norm—taking into consideration such issues as mortality, achievement motivation, aggression, and society's expectations. Up-to-date research includes coverage of eating disorders, sexual violence, sexuality, dating, and career development. The overview's four major sections cover the heritage of the field, development across the life cycle, women and social relationships, and women as victims and survivors. For anyone looking for a better understanding of the psychology of women, and especially for women of college age.
