The field of ‘psychology and gender’ is an uneven, contentious and contested terrain, and the book tries to engage the readers with this challenging field. Going beyond treating ‘gender’ as a mere demographic variable, it talks about the impact of gender on various branches of psychology and unpacks themes, debates and controversies related to these concepts. Psychology and Gender: An Introduction also examines, critiques and debunks some of the major theoretical premises of mainstream psychology and looks at how these theories speak to gender- related issues. Besides this, important concepts such as gender role development and interpersonal relationships have been explored through multidisciplinary mode, cutting across qualifiers of caste, class, genders, sexualities, race and region.

This textbook will appeal to students of psychology and gender studies, teachers, practitioners and those working specifically on engendering psychology.
