Summary This volume contributes to contemporary feminism by extending the discourse of constructionist accounts in psychology. The view is adopted that sexuality is actively constructed and emergent within contexts. In other words, sexuality is repeatedly negotiated and redefined; sexuality changes developmentally over the life span; it has various meanings and manifestations; and it can be used in a larger sense to reinforce violence against women. The belief is espoused that new constructions of sexuality have the potential to transform the way women themselves think, feel, and behave. This book contributes to the development of an integrated body of scholarly research and provides an arena for the discussion and sharing of newly emerging approaches that offer better understanding of gender, sexuality, and culture.
