In a society that attaches prime importance to individual achievement, the connectedness of women's experience has traditionally been undervalued. Striving toward a more accurate representation of women's psychological development, the Stone Center at Wellesley College has become well known for its exploration of women's ways of defining themselves in relation to others. This new collection builds on the foundations laid by the widely acclaimed Women's Growth In Connection to further describe the relational perspective, devoting special attention to the diversity of women's experience. Its 15 thoughtful and clearly written chapters offer fresh insights on vital issues including sexuality, shame, anger, depression, power relations between women, and women's experiences in therapy, and make engaging reading for anyone—female or male—interested in increasing connectedness at a personal and societal level.
