An update of the feminist classic that "did nothing less than alter the course of gender psychology" (Psychology Today)

In the years since its original publication, this best-selling classic became famous for its groundbreaking demonstration of how sexual stereotypes restrict our psychological development. Toward a New Psychology of Women revolutionized the concepts of strength and weakness, dependency and autonomy, emotion, success, and power, selling more than 200,000 copies and changing the lives of women across the globe.

In this updated second edition, Dr. Jean Baker Miller reflects on where women are today, addressing both the enormous progress in some areas and the challenges still to be met. Celebrating the questions that have been raised and the actions women have taken, as well as looking toward future change, Miller affirms the strength and diversity of womanhood.
