Gender Issues in Contemporary Society by Stuart Oskamp

Book Description

During the past two decades, the study of how gender influences social life has moved from the outskirts to the centre of psychology. Some of psychology's most cherished assumptions have been challenged and feminist scholars proposed alternative views of human development, research methods, cognitive functioning, family life and communication. These challenges have invigorated many areas of psychology. Distinctive in its emphasis on applied issues that have practical importance in the lives of women and men, this volume presents current knowledge about key gender issues and sheds light on problems and controversies. Specific issues explored include: gender differences in emotion; desire for control; attitudes towards leadership; and expressive behaviour.
