“As this volume demonstrates, the global–local telescope of transnational feminism liberates scholars, practitioners, and researchers from White and White American middle-class feminism and enables us to view the diversity of women in their diaspora, cross-borders, and intersectional contexts.”

—Gargi Roysircar-Sodowsky, EdD, Professor Emerita, Antioch University New England, Keene, NH


This book presents groundbreaking scholarship on new approaches to women’s psychology.
Transnational psychology pushes beyond traditional Western, androcentric frameworks to provide theorists, researchers, and practitioners with tools to identify and deconstruct hegemonies, give voice to the marginalized, and critically examine the dynamic nature of identity in local and global contexts.

Distinguished authors represent a diverse array of viewpoints originating in postcolonial, postmodern, Third World and Women of Color feminist scholarship, intersectionality and critical race theory.

Chapters explain how transnational perspectives can address a range of topics including human trafficking, sexuality, migration, human rights, healing, empowerment, domestic violence, education, and work.

The book concludes with chapters on teaching these approaches, and a roadmap for the future of this growing field of study.
