Psychology of Gender

Fall 2019

Taught By: Lisa Rubin

Section: A

CRN: 7066

Credits: 3

Over the past 30 years, feminists have transformed the field of psychology. Feminist psychologists have challenged how we study, what we study, and what we know about the lives of both women and men. This course provides an overview of the now growing field of the psychology of gender, from the early feminist psychologists who challenged notions of women's intellectual and emotional inferiority through their rigorous scientific research, to the growing study of field of masculinity studies within feminist psychology. With a focus on the intersectionality of gender with race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, and disability, we explore key themes and topics within feminist psychological research. Topics include theories of gendered psychological development, the regulation and management of the body across the lifespan and across cultures, sexuality and reproduction, mental and physical health, feminist therapy, work, and violence.
