The Section on Women and Psychology (SWAP) is a community of researchers, teachers, and practitioners interested in the psychology of women and feminist psychology. It aims to advance the status of women in psychology, to promote equity for women in general, and to educate psychologists and the public on topics relevant to women and girls. It supports students through an annual student paper award and a convention social event. Members are kept informed of developments via annual newsletters and are connected through the CanFemPsyc listserv and other online groups.
