At what costs do feminist perspectives join with psychology to revise and improve it? Where does a feminist psychological practice fit in with feminist movements and campaigns? How can feminist psychological practice address issues of difference between women in meaningful ways? An international group of key feminist psychologists use a range of perspectives to explore the relationship between feminist politics and psychological practices in different countries. Deconstructing Feminist Psychology critiques feminist practice within psychology and reflects the diversity of feminist struggles around psychology internationally. It is the first volume of its kind, with chapters written by feminist psychologists in ętransnationalĘ and post-colonial contexts (of South Africa, Serbia, and Puerto Rico), from distinct European traditions of critical psychology and womenĘs studies (of Spain and Germany), as well as psychologyĘs colonial center in the U.S. Issues of race, class, and sexuality figure centrally in the discussions around the politics of feminist practice in psychology. Both timely and engaging, this book makes a major contribution to debates about feminist politics and practice in diverse geo-politics arenas. It will be essential reading for academics and practitioners in psychology and students of feminist psychology.
