About the Book
Within this revised edition of Psycho-feminism in two volumes, new forms of theory and methods of inquiry relating social constructionism to feminist topics are described in eleven chapters. First volume deals with historical imagination, conceptual development, and critical examination of feminist attitude and behavior, however, second volume examines gender anxiety, feminist morality, and post-feminist debate on media and film theory. The unique quality of this book is that in each chapter, author brings her own cultural perspective, values, and concerns. Special emphasis is also given to the inter-sectionality of feminist identities such as race, ethnicity, social class, sexual preference, and other socially constructed status differences among women. This book also presents a multicultural approach to diversity in feminist psychology, and comprehensively discusses the cutting-edge of post-feminist debate and intervention.
