Review quote

"A book such as Paludi's provides a ready-made compilation of resources, including selected references, films, organizations, course outlines, and class exercises," noted Contemporary Psychology in their review of the book's first edition. Building on that foundation the second edition defines four learning goals of students in courses on the psychology of women throughout the country--knowledge base, learning skills, feminist pedagogy, and personal growth.
