Hello! We are Tal Davidson and Susannah Mulvale, members of Psychology’s Feminist Voices team, and the new co-editors of the Standpoints blog! Under the curation of former editor Dr. Jacy Young, Standpoints has become an engaging and entertaining mosaic of reflections and essays, highlighting a diverse range of psychological topics and feminist perspectives. We are excited to continue adding fresh voices and inspiring ideas to the mix of standpoints featured so far!
To mark the re-launch of Standpoints, our upcoming post by Elizabeth Johnston and Ann Johnson takes a critical look at the role women have had in bringing psychology into the public eye. In the spirit of Standpoints, this piece is a true mashup of feminism, psychology, and history – stay tuned!
