    Women and Psychology introduces students to the myriad challenges facing women today as well as the psychological effects these challenges can perpetuate. The anthology outlines key issues both within the United States and abroad to provide readers with a global overview of select female experiences. The collection provides valuable insight into behaviors and practices that cultivate gender discrimination, pulls back the curtain on topics rarely explored by the general public, and empowers students to stand up for justice for women.

    The text begins with chapters that explore the history of women at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the identity economics of female genital mutilation. Additional chapters address sex differences in emotional communication, the psychological costs of terminating a pregnancy, endometriosis, and the consequences of infertility in developing countries. Students read articles on the emotional and behavioral health of college-aged women, human trafficking, violence against women, and the balance of women and work. The anthology closes with a reading about the importance of feminism in contemporary society.

    Meant to serve as a supplementary text, Women and Psychology is well-suited for any course that explores the intersection of women and psychology.

    Robin Kowalski earned her Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, M.A. in psychology from Wake Forest University, and B.A. in psychology from Furman University. She is a professor of psychology in the College of Behavioral, Social, and Health Sciences at Clemson University, where she teaches courses in psychology, women and psychology, and the pursuit of happiness. Her research focuses on bullying and cyberbullying among youth and adults, including the factors leading to bullying, aversive interpersonal behaviors such as teasing and complaining, and bullying prevention and intervention efforts.
