Empowering Women of Color

Front Cover
Women of colour constitute a large proportion of most social work caseloads, and this is the first comprehensive textbook to address their unique needs. Recognizing that women of colour come from many disparate backgrounds, this book includes chapters by guest authors on particular communities, including African-American women, native American women, Latinas, Asian-Pacific women, and lesbian and bisexual women of colour.
