About the Authors
  • This volume traces the life journeys of a cohort of influential and transformative women in psychology, now in or nearing retirement, who have changed the discipline and the broader world of academia in significant ways. The 26 reflective essays record how these scholars thrived in an academic landscape that was often, at best, unwelcoming, and, at worst, hostile, toward them. They explicitly and implicitly acknowledge that their paths were inextricably linked with the evolution of women's roles in society; they highlight and celebrate their achievements as much as they acknowledge and recognize the obstacles, barriers, and hurdles they overcame. They tell their stories with candor and humor, resulting in a compilation of inspiring essays. The end result of these individual narratives is a volume that provides a unique resource for current and future academics to help them navigate through the crossroads, curves, and challenges of their own careers in academia.

    • Provides a historical record of women who were largely unwelcome or unsupported in the field of psychology at their time of entry to it (1960s-1980s), but who nevertheless went on to become leaders and to have transformative impact
    • The life experiences in this collection, representing varied pathways in academia, have been written by the women themselves in their own words
    • Offers inspiration, guidance, and advice through rich and varied reflective essays that share the journeys, obstacles and achievements of ground-breaking woman in psychology
