Abstract

Sex Roles is celebrating its 35th anniversary by inviting articles from authors of relevant textbooks. I wrote The Psychology of Women because I have a long-standing concern for social justice and because I actually enjoy writing textbooks. The structure of the 7th edition of this textbook is not markedly different from other recent editions. However, our discipline has changed substantially in terms of the volume of research, the growing emphasis on intersectionality, the awareness that gender biases and gender comparisons are often relatively subtle, and the changing nature of the research findings. Current textbook authors face challenges such as the overwhelming amount of new information, the difficulty of presenting information about social justice, and problems with publishing companies. Achieving gender equality will continue to be a challenging goal.
