Women's Dimension in Psychological Research

A Critique

The women's question in India has not engaged the sustained and meaningful attention of contemporary scholars in the field of psychology and has more or less remained 'invisible' as a theme of research. The present paper is a critique of psychological research on women. An attempt has been made to show how psychology has dealt with women's issues in a tokenistic manner and how such research is based on questionable premises. Specifically, two themes of research which are most commonly indulged in by psychologists have been considered: (l) sex differences in a number of psychological variables and (2) sex role conflict.
