Women Voicing Resistance has won the 2015 Distinguished Publication Award!

It is with great pleasure that Routledge can announce that Suzanne McKenzie-Mohr and Michelle N. Lafrance have been awarded the 2015 Distinguished Publication Award (DPA) of the Association for Women in Psychology (AWP), for their book Women Voicing Resistance (Routledge, 2014).

The Distinguished Publication Award (DPA) recognizes works that make significant and substantial contributions to research and theory that advance understanding of the psychology of women and that promote the achievement of the goals of the Association for Women in Psychology. Winners are decided by the committee of psychologists who are members of the AWP.

“The DPA Committee were very impressed with the book,” states Carla Golden, “ the importance of the research reported within it, the consistently high quality of the individual contributions, its relevance to our organization’s member, and its accessibility among many other features.”

Women Voicing Resistance challenges the patriarchal ‘dominant discourse’ and ‘master narratives’ which feminist scholars see too often distorting and damaging women’s own storying of their lives. This volume offers poignant examples of women trying to counter the prevailing patriarchal discourses in society, to tell their own stories.

The Distinguished Publication Award will be presented to the winning authors at the March 2016 Association for Women in Psychology conference in Pittsburgh, USA. Routledge would like to thank the Association for Women in Psychology Committee for their work.
