This collection of original essays integrates the exciting recent scholarship on feminist theories and methods into developmental psychology. It also acquaints women's studies scholars with issues in developmental psychology that raise interesting questions for feminist theories. Its focus goes beyond that of traditional scholarship that tends to focus only on sex differences and sex roles; instead it considers alternative views of what is worth studying, how one should study it, etc. The chapters provide new, feminist perspectives on topics of great current interest to developmental psychologists.

Industry Reviews

"A sparkling set of essays at the confluence of developmental psychology and feminist theory. This sophisticated collection bubbles over with provocative and vigorously argued ideas, novel questions, and innovative modes of inquiry. It's a gem." -Jeanne Maracek, Professor of Psychology and Coordinator of the Women's Studies Program at Swarthmore College "Miller and Scholnick's book is cause for celebration: at long last, a feminist perspective on developmental psychology. The ideas presented in this book transform the study of sex differences." -Peggy Miller, Professor of Psychology and Speech Communication at the University of Illinois ""Toward a Feminist Developmental Psychology combines critical analysis with generative, positive frameworks for improving both theory and practice." -Erica Burman, Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies at The Manchester Metropolitan University
