Psychology of Women and Equalities Section

This Section aims to draw together all those working in different areas of psychology who share an interest in the psychology of women, and to provide a forum within which issues in this field may be debated.

POWS was set up as a subsection of the British Psychological Society in 1988 to: 

  • Bring together everyone with an interest in the Psychology of Women
  • Provide a forum for the Psychology of Women in research, teaching, and professional practice
  • Increase awareness and action around gender and inequality issues within the British Psychological Society, Psychology profession, and the teaching of Psychology.
