REFLECTS THE SHIFTING FOCUS OF THE FIELD

Contemporary areas of research and theory are prominently featured, including self-objectification, self-sexualisation, neuro-sexism, intensive parenting and the glass cliff/escalator. Students encounter many of these key issues in their daily life and will encounter many more after they graduate.

INCLUSIVE AND DIVERSE

The book integrates the experiences of diverse women, including those who identify as transgender, with the coverage of central issues in the field. The importance of understanding intersecting social identities (i.e., race, class and sexual orientation) is integrated throughout each chapter, rather than suggested as an aside at the end of sections or chapters.

ENGAGES STUDENTS WITH RELEVANT, HANDS-ON EXERCISES

Examples from traditional and social media are integrated throughout each chapter and students are frequently asked to explore ideas further through “Spotlight On”, “Try It for Yourself” and “Your Turn” boxes. These pedagogical features can serve as prompts for journaling, blogging or papers, as well as in-class discussion.

THOUGHT-PROVOKING DEBATES ENCOURAGE CRITICAL THINKING

“Empowering or Oppressing?” features in each chapter challenge students to see an argument from both sides, rather than telling them what to believe or which side to support. Students are encouraged to think critically about these issues and come to their own conclusions.

FLEXIBLE RESOURCES FOR YOUR COURSE

Carefully created resources support every instructor, including a test bank, lecture and art PowerPoint slides and an Interactive Instructor’s Guide. The guide contains video links, discussion questions and activities based on the “Psychology’s Feminist Voices” website.
