Overcoming Discrimination, Persecution, and Violence Against WomenToward a Socially-Responsible Psychology for a Global Era (2013)
This chapter addresses how silence gives consent to conditions that are oppressive, and examines how voice is liberatory, providing an antidote to the power of oppression that survives through silence. Additionally, we focus on psychology's responsibility to confront more proactively and systemically the interlinked issues of oppression, discrimination, and violence against women.
- Silencing of women,
