chology in 1990 from Stanford University, and her BA in
psychology from Smith College in 1985. Her publications in
the areas of gender, personality, and emotion psychology
include “Objectification Theory,” an original theory that has

quences of the sexual objectification of girls and women. The

ticle in the 35-year history of the journal Psychology of
Women Quarterly. She served on the American Psychologi-
cal Association’s Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls, is
coauthor of the Sexualization of Girls and Girlhood: Causes,
Consequences and Resistance (2012), and continues to work
on empirical research, applied consulting work, and media
efforts in this area. In addition to her teaching in both psy-
chology and gender studies at Colorado College, she cur-
rently serves on the executive committee of APA’s Division
35, chairs a Task Force on Educating Through Feminist Re-
search, and is a certified Laughter Yoga Leader.
