PSYC 243 Psychology of Women
A feminist perspective is used to explore the influence of social and psychological factors in shaping women’s attitudes and behavior and in shaping the attitudes and behavior of people toward women. The role played by psychology in creating scientific myths about women and, more recently, psychology’s interest in correcting these misconceptions, are examined. Topic areas include sex-role stereotyping and androgyny, traditional and non-traditional roles of women, women and mental health issues, sexuality, culture and language, and health. (LA)
