The Global Is Local: Adding Culture, Ideology, and Context to International Psychology
Marecek, Jeanne
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v36 n2 p149-153 Jun 2012
"The Political is Personal" (Else-Quest & Grabe, 2012) opens the door to transnational feminist research. Else-Quest and Grabe (2012) invite "Psychology of Women Quarterly" (PWQ) readers to make use of country-level indices to examine connections between sociopolitical gender disparities and women's distress and deprivation. The author shares these authors' desire to put the political onto the research agenda of U.S. feminist psychologists, as well as their desire to expand the purview of U.S. feminist psychology beyond the borders of North America. She also shares their desire to add to the methodological toolbox of feminist psychology. In what follows, the author opens the door to international work even wider by proposing additional theoretical and methodological tools. She invites feminist psychologists to incorporate the study of culture, ideology, and context into international research. Contains 4 notes.)
