About the Author

Andrea L. Dottolo is Assistant Professor of Psychology at Rhode Island College, Providence, RI, USA, and resident scholar at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, USA. Her research and teaching explores how social identities are constructed and maintained, and the ways in which they are shaped by institutional and political structures Ellyn Kaschak is Professor Emerita of Psychology at San Jose State University, CA, USA, Visiting Professor at the United Nations' University for Peace in Costa Rica, and the editor of the journal Women and Therapy. She is the author of Sight Unseen: Race and Gender through Blind Eyes (2015).


"The authors take on the very academic framework and practices of psychology themselves, arguing that it is time to begin chipping away at the 'propped-up' racial hierarchies that secure the place of select groups within these hierarchies. (...) This is a useful book for anybody wanting to read this important collection who does not have access to Women & Therapy; it is a must for the library of any counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical psychologist training centre." - James Costello, Department of Psychology, University of the West of England, Bristol
