Summary Resisting Gender provides a reflexive social history of the development of the psychology of women as an academic field of research and teaching. Core areas of concern in feminist psychology are examined, including discrimination, power and social control, critique of theory and content in psychology, and epistemology. The book outlines the stages through which the psychology of women has moved, and highlights the on-going questions and dilemmas for the field. Resisting Gender is primarily written for graduate students and professionals who are new to the psychology of women. It should also be read by scholars of psychology, sociology, social history, history of science and women's studies
