It presents research and theory that embed human action in social, cultural and interpersonal contexts. The book provides conceptual tools for thinking about gender, social categorization, human meaning and culture. It also describes a family of interpretative research methods, which focus on rich talk and everyday activities, and provides a close-in view of how interpretative research proceeds. The latter portion of the book showcases innovative projects in the psychology of gender that investigate topics of concern to scholars and feminist activists: young teens' encounters with heterosexual norms; male-female couples' negotiating the sharing of housework and childcare; sexual coercion and violence in male-female relationships; the cultural politics of women's weight and eating concerns; psychiatric labeling of psychological suffering; and feminism in psychotherapy"--"@en ;
