Transformational Moments in Feminist Psychology
Important turning points in feminist psychology can sometimes be traced to particular moments—specific publications or situations in which an individual or group sparked advancement of the field. For example, Naomi Weisstein’s article, "Kinder, Küche, Kirche as Scientific Law: Psychology Constructs the Female" often is credited as marking the beginning of contemporary feminist psychology. Just as there are national milestones like Weisstein’s article, there are also many transformational moments with a local flavor that have yet to be recognized. I would like your help in identifying turning points in feminist psychology specific to geographic regions, colleges/universities, or specializations within psychology.
This project focuses on accounts of unsung local transformational moments in feminist psychology as reported by the feminist psychologists who organized, participated in or benefited from those moments. Project results were included in an invited talk (PDF 259KB) at the 2014 Annual APA Convention.
