Psychology’s Feminist Voices Now on Facebook!

Psychology’s Feminist Voices (PFV), the fantastic multimedia internet archive devoted both to women’s contributions to the early discipline and to highlighting the work of contemporary feminist researchers, is now on Facebook! The group’s page is well underway, with posts highlighting some of the fascinating material available on the PFV site. For instance, check out a great image of Psyche Cattell climbing a tree and the documentary on her work featured on the site. Other items that have been highlighted on PFV‘s Facebook page include video clips from interviews conducted by Don Dewsbury with pioneering clinical psychologist Molly Harrower where she discusses, among other things, her work with Canadian neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield. Harrower was the psychologist under the surgical tent during Penfield’s neural stimulation procedures! (For those unfamiliar with Penfield check out the now classic Canadian Heritage Minute on his work below.)

More great content is sure to be up on the PFV Facebook page in the weeks ahead!
