About this title


Rich, original, and transformative, the latest edition of A New Psychology of Women examines how gender-related expectations interact with other cultural assumptions and stereotypes, and with social and economic conditions, to affect women's experiences and behavior. Absorbing narratives centered on essential topics in psychology and global research engage readers to grasp cutting-edge insights into the psychological diversity of women. Aware that our own cultural experience colors and limits what we think we know about people, veteran educator and scholar Hilary Lips imbues her discussions with international examples and perspectives to provide an inclusive approach to the psychology of women.

A wide range of new and extensively updated topics optimize readers' knowledge of how disparate perspectives from cultures throughout the world shape women's behavior and attitudes toward:

health care / violence against women / poverty / labor force participation / occupational segregation / unpaid work / stereotyping and discrimination / expectations about power within marriage / female genital mutilation / theories of gender development / women's attitudes toward their bodies / use of social media / media portrayals of girls and women / women in political leadership roles

Among thoroughly updated topics particular to US culture are same-sex marriage, Latina women's issues, the portrayal of women of different ethnic and cultural groups on television, and breast cancer survival rates of African American and European American women.

Boxed items containing learning activities, profiles of women who helped shape psychology, and suggestions for making social changes appear throughout the text. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions, key terms, suggestions for additional reading, and Web resources.
