Using a direct, personal voice that students will find engaging, Elizabeth Rider offers a well-researched, logical, and empirical book that presents current issues in the psychology of women in a balanced and fair manner. The author does not represent a particular agenda, but instead presents the best of what we know, even with its limitations. Throughout the book, applications relate the material to women's lives in a compelling, personal way. Featured studies illuminate the process of research, describe the "why" and "how" of key experiments, and introduce students to the primary literature in the field. As students see how researchers have gone about exploring questions about the psychology of women, they are encouraged to think critically and to see the research in context.
Elizabeth (Betty) Rider is Professor of Psychology and Associate Dean of the Faculty at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. After earning her degree in developmental psychology at Vanderbilt University, she taught at the University of North Carolina at Asheville for several years before moving back to her home state of Pennsylvania more than 15 years ago. She regularly teaches Psychology of Women and Developmental Psychology courses to undergraduates at an institution where student learning is the number one priority. In addition to this text, she has co-authored a popular text on life-span human development. When not writing or teaching, this single mom devotes her energies to raising her son and working outdoors.
