Explorations and Challenges
Awards and Recognition:
Winner of the Distinguished Publication Award of the Association for Women in Psychology, 1988.
This bestselling pioneering anthology brings together a diverse group of twenty-six feminist writers, therapists and academics. Their work represents a beginning effort to capture the experience of contemporary American lesbians. Writing about their own lives as well as the lives of the women they have observed and counseled, the authors explore four topics central to building a lesbian psychology: identity, relationships, community, and therapy.
"A rich compendium of information and ideas on many features of the science of mind and behavior as it relates to lesbians. . . . Important reading for women's studies courses as well as for the academic programs that deal with female sexuality."
-- Journal of Homosexuality
