Representing the Other: A Feminism & Psychology Reader
Name Representing the Other: A Feminism & Psychology Reader
Author Celia Kitzinger
Description This innovative collection addresses a challenging issue in contemporary feminist theory and practice: whether - and how - we should represent members of groups to which we do not ourselves belong. The discussions identify key concerns related to representation and difference.

Contributors draw on personal experiences of speaking `for' and `about' Others in their research, professional practice, writing or political activism. Problems of representing Others with ethnic or cultural backgrounds different from one's own are highlighted, and the discussions extend to representations of children, prostitutes, infertile women, `fat' women, gay men with HIV//AIDS and people with disabilities.
