A critical reflectionMoreUnique with its predominately South African context, this examination draws on local experiences and studies to present a critical gender analysis of the discipline and practice of psychology in marginalized parts of the world. A critical reflection on how psychology frequently reinforces oppressive practices with respect to gender, sex, and sexuality as well as a look to professional areas of psychology and their application in terms of gender differences are included. Students of psychology and gender studies are offered a wealth of international critical theory complimented by material from communities not usually represented in psychology textbooks.
