First published in 1985, this ground-breaking volume contributes to a largely neglected area of social work research, theory and practice. The collection of essays by internationally known social work educators and practitioners applies feminist perspectives to a wide range of issues influencing the social work profession and social work practice. In doing so, it demonstrates that a liberal feminist position is consistent with social work practice. Nearly all the chapters focus on direct practice issues, such as problems faced by women who have been sexually assaulted, the lack of adequate health care provided to lesbians from traditional health care systems, and sexist bias in sex therapy and family therapy models.

This book will be of interest to students and practitioners of social work.
