Abstract

This article presents the importance of feminist pedagogy in under-graduate psychology education and proposes the premise that men doing feminist work can be effective allies when they acknowledge their privilege, are actively self-reflective, confront a tendency to conform to masculine norms, and are active in their pursuits of social justice. The article then summarizes four major themes in feminist pedagogy as they apply to undergraduate education. In addition, examples of course scenarios and anecdotes from students are provided to assist in demonstrating some of the attempts the primary author has made to incorporate feminism in his work as an instructor. These initial educational steps are argued to provide a baseline for future endeavors in feminist thought and application. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
