This groundbreaking volume powerfully makes the point that a liberal feminist position is consistent with social work practice. Internationally known social work educators and practitioners successfully apply feminist perspectives to a wide range of issues influencing the social work profession and thus social work practice. Nearly all the chapters in this essential volume focus on direct practice issues, such as common problems of women who have been sexually assaulted, lesbians’lack of adequate health care from traditional health care systems, and sexist bias in sex therapy and family therapy models.
