In this text author Janet Hyde examines the balance of cultural and biological similarities (and differences) between the genders, noting how these characteristics may affect issues of equality, and also how men and women behave towards one another. By putting into context the proliferation of research in the field and clearly explaining the relationship between gender and emotion, the author helps demystify the scientific process and study of feminist psychology. Students receive a strong foundation for understanding the influences of gender, race, and ethnicity on psychology and society, as well as strategies for thinking critically about "pop" versus academic feminism as it relates to psychology. The Gender and Emotion chapter reflects the latest research on these issues with topics that address the emotional differences between genders, ethnicity, stereotyping, and experience as well as the ways in which family or peers can socialize children about how to label and interpret their feelings and in the process, are likely to impose gender stereotypes. Women and the Web features at the end of each chapter provide full descriptions of key sites related to the chapter topic. Links can be found on the textbook companion site.
