Women’s Lives: A Psychological Exploration draws on a wealth of the literature to present a rich range of experiences and issues of relevance to girls and women. This text offers the unique combination of a chronological approach to gender that is embedded within topical chapters.

With over 2,100 new references emphasizing the latest research and theories, and for the first time, MySearchLab with eText, the authors continue to pique interests in psychology of women.
