"Why do women experience depression at twice the rate of men? This important collection brings the missing voices of women's own experience to the discussion, with rich and original results. Contributors--leading researchers as well as rising stars--provide sophisticated and nuanced studies of women working to make sense of and cope with their experiences of depression. An important analysis of gendered expectations in creating the context for depression. A needed and most welcome addition to fathoming the experience of depression." - Stephanie A. Shields, author of Speaking from the Heart: Gender and the Social Meaning of Emotion "This book brings together work from a number of researchers who have been in the vanguard of changing the ride... presents a powerful and convincing case for a relational approach." - Journal of Reproductive and Infant Psychology
