Review:

"Unger presents an authoritative account of feminist psychology and its major practitioners, as well as her own contributions, including six reprints of earlier addresses or papers."--Sari M. Van Anders"Arch Sex Behav (2008) 37: 352-353" (06/23/2008)

-Unger presents an authoritative account of feminist psychology and its major practitioners, as well as her own contributions, including six reprints of earlier addresses or papers.---Sari M. Van Anders-Arch Sex Behav (2008) 37: 352-353- (06/23/2008)

The book is engaging and stimulating....The book will make interesting reading for scholars, graduate students, and upper students across many specialities in psychology, sociology, and family studies that focus on gender and women's studies and the psychology of women and gender' - Contemporary Sociology

She is illuminating and incisive in her critiques of the rapidity with which even feminist psychology moves from conceptualizing the distribution of power and its personal and interpersonal effects to focusing on "perceptions of power" as well as the move from the demonstration of the pervasiveness of sexism to studies of the psychology of prejudice, which she identifies as a retreat from behaviour to attitudes, from external barriers that women face to internal ones-their own and others' attitudes' - Cognitives, Emotions and Identities

The well-organized book provides a needed contribution for feminist psychology, in that it is written from an experimental psychologist's perspective, which gives it a unique niche in a field in which feminist psychology and experimental psychology are often seen to be at odds with one another. Unger does a good job outlining the tensions between these and other perspectives in this book' - Contemporary Psychology
