In this insightful, provocative text, Hilary Lips lively narrative focuses on diversity without losing sight that the world is an interdependent community and what happens anywhere is likely to be relevant to many of us. Sensitive to the limitations of her own cultural perspective--that of a feminist social psychologist, a middle-class white woman who grew up in Canada and now teaches and writes in the United States--Lips draws from scholarly research outside the U.S. to present a global perspective on the psychology of women. She creatively exposes readers to the role of culture in shaping women s experiences, knowledge, and understanding and includes multicultural beliefs and findings. Much of the detailed coverage stems from broader topics that include female male differences, how girls are socialized throughout childhood and adolescence, how early messages are translated into later behavior, how women are treated in the workplace, how being female affects physical and mental health, and how issues affecting women change as they transition to middle and old age. Each chapter includes a profile of a woman who helped shape psychology to illustrate the diverse perspectives that have constructed our understanding. Also included are learning activities, suggestions for making social change, discussion questions, key terms, and suggestions for additional reading and Web resources.

Reviews about A New Psychology of Women: Gender, Culture, and Ethnicity (7):
Doukree
I have the e-book edition, class just began last week. I am enjoying the Women of Psychology online class, so far!

Incredibly tough book
Kieel
The information is not well rounded, and not well put together.
It's better if your instructor puts together their own collection of texts for you to read...
This is probably OK for a simple undergraduate book for an introduction class, where the book is only there to supplement the in-class lectures, but it would be silly for any instructor to base tests off of this book, or actually expect serious discussions from it. It's more of one of those books instructors pick because it fits the title of the course -- as there arn't many like it, and they didn't have the experience to collect substantial articles for their course.

I will say that Hilary Lips is an innovator for the fact that she is one of the few psychologists to attempt to take a multi-cultural approach to addressing the psychology of women; however, I found some of her information misleading & at times, I felt that she was writing only what she wanted to about particular women from different backgrounds. For example, she took the time to address the matter of some Black women bleaching their skin because Black men view having a lighter partner as a social asset (Lips,2010), but she didn't take the time to investigate the reasons why women of European descent go tanning at such a high rate, even though tanning is more common among Euro-American women than bleaching is among African-American women. I also found that she did a lot of man-bashing throughout the text; I understand the feminist approach & wanting equality between sexes, but not all men are as dreadful as they are portrayed in the text. I think that some of the studies that she cited were bull-crap as well. Still, there is a lot of insight in this text & Lips does acknowledge the fact that what we call "facts" are really best just best guesses. I still believe that another psychologist should try a multi-cultural approach to women's psychology & address all of the issues at hand equally with regards to women all of the ethnicities being discussed.

Well written and relating esp when read by a woman. My daughter thought it was a valuable book to shelf graduating college and attributes her success by this informative read.
Bloodhammer
When receiving the book, there were no words in chapter 2....NICE!
Where is the quality control.

Now I am Scrambling...May have to ask my instructor or someone else if I can borrow their book for this chapter.
Very disappointed...

I had to purchase it for a college course. I wish I did not have to buy it, but found it helpful enough to get an A in the class. Like all text books if you are a college student see how much your instructor is going to be focusing on text books required for class, and then check to see if there is one on reserve in the school library for you to use. If you don't have to buy it, I would say save yourself the extra cash:)
I'm taking "Psychological Perspectives on Gender" at my University for a course, and I've read a few other texts on GWS, but this text is sexist at times and uses surveys to create a propaganda like textbook. My biggest complaint throughout the text is Lips will make claims without citations. She'll make statements like on page 105 of the third edition "In some cultures, women take control of the birth process, and the woman giving birth is viewed as a traveler on a difficult journey or a warrior going through a challenging rite of passage." No citation is given, but seems to fuel this underlying message of woman supremacy. Then sometimes when facts are given, information is manipulated, magnifying an issue to an extreme, "Removal or reshaping of all or part of the clitoris, called clitoroplasty, by modern surgeons, happens about five times a day in the United States (Coventry, 2000)." My problem is with this, when calculated out means according to this information about 1825 clitoroplasty operations occur in the United States. When compared with the July 2009 US Census Bureau Population survey, we discover 1825 people out of 307,006,550 have this surgery performed on them. When using this information Lips tries to persuade people toward underlying viewpoints on gender. Also, at times she'll provide surveys that are special cases to try to disprove issues. Such as on page 100, she uses research from Marjori Shostak in 1981 that focuses on eight !Kung women being studied across two menstrual cycles to disprove the idea that hormone levels during Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) did not affect mood, but rather blames on much more powerful influences such as the behavior of husbands, relatives, and friends, or the availability of food and water or minor illness (Lips, 100). The amount of women surveyed is too small to represent the billions that exist on this planet, let alone the demographic for !Kung women. This sort of biased information is from chapter three and ranges throughout the book. Instead of taking small studies from special cases that disprove ideas, Lips needs more thorough research to try to prove her points. Stay away from this book, unless it is required by a GWS coarse. For a better book, I recommend "Sexual Fluidity", by Lisa M. Diamond. It does a better job than this text.
