Deconstructing feminist psychology

How close is feminist psychology to contemporary feminism? How can feminist psychological practice address issues of 'difference' between women in meaningful ways? What price has feminist psychology had to pay for attempting to engage with mainstream psychology to revise and improve it? This book critiques feminist practice within psychology, and reflects the diversity from across the globe of feminist struggles around psychology. An international group of key feminist psychologists explore the relations between feminist politics and psychological practices in: transitional and postcolonial contexts; the distinct European traditions of critical psychology and women's studies; and psychology's colonial 'centre' in the United States. Issues of 'race', class and sexuality figure centrally in the discussions around the politics of feminist practice in psychology
