Limitations in our knowledge of women's lives are most strikingly revealed by social scientists' attempts to respond to the HIV/AIDS crisis. Most psychological research studies Anglo middle- and upper-middle-class college students, to the detriment of our current need for knowledge of the populations of women most at risk for HIV/AIDS, who are non-Anglo, poor, and less educated. This special issue was initiated by the Task Force on Women and HIV of the Society for the Psychology of Women, Division 35 of the American Psychological Association. Our immediate objective was to present in a single issue a full range of current research practices and needs along with any exemplary innovations, and to identify the dilemmas facing investigators that might be blocking theory development. We hope to inspire, inform, and energize those whose contributions are most needed to advance theory and research that will be helpful to researchers and practitioners of HIV prevention and services. The long-range goal of this special issue is to stimulate innovative and useful theory development by gathering empirical work that challenges current theory and shows the role of culture.
