PWQ on Facebook
Psychology of Women Quarterly (PWQ), the APA's Division 35 official journal, is celebrating its 35th Anniversary in 2011, and the PWQ Facebook page has been developed to build our feminist community, develop and disseminate information about the journal, and advance the empirical and theoretical knowledge-base centered on the psychology of women. Please join the PWQ Facebook page!
What is Facebook?
Some of you may be familiar with the social network, but in case not, following are a few details. Facebook is a social network that allows people to connect with friends, family members, and colleagues. By creating a personal profile, users can join common interest groups, which are organized by workplace, university, and professional organization. Psychology of Women Quarterly (PWQ) has recently launched a Facebook page to connect researchers, practitioners, and activists, among other professionals, as well as non-psychologists who are interested in feminist scholarship.
How can I benefit from the Psychology of Women Quarterly Facebook page?
You can benefit from the PWQ Facebook page in a number of ways. First, you will have an opportunity to connect with other professionals who share similar interests in the area of feminist scholarship (e.g., feminist approaches, methodologies, and critiques; violence against women; body image and objectification; sexism, stereotyping, and discrimination; intersectionality of gender with other social locations; international concerns; lifespan development and change; physical and mental well-being; therapeutic interventions; sexuality; social activism; and career development). Second, our Facebook page offers an accessible forum to learn about the journal generally and highlights in upcoming issues, specifically. For instance, PWQ Editor, Jan Yoder, conducted a 15-minute video and podcast interview with Dr. Sarah Gervias at the University of Nebraska whose lead article in the March 2011 issue demonstrated how women's exposure to a quick objectifiying male gaze undermined their math performance. Third, you can share and discover the latest professional development opportunities. Finally, our page provides space to engage with or listen in on conversations surrounding women and gender.
