This collection of case studies shows how women's psychological lives unfold across the broad spectrum of experience. The contributors study women from many backgrounds - old and young, rich and poor, heterosexual and lesbian, and from various races - in the context of their individual circumstances, to reveal the psychological complexities that are unique to each one, and at the same time the relationship between psychological development and gender. The book provides a window on the world of those who have struggled to enter traditionally male domains such as medicine, together with those who have suffered bereavement, sexual abuse or political turmoil. The relationship between two lesbian priests is explored and the study of two black activists' political involvement shows how a sense of community can reinforce the changing image of the self.
