Social Justice Is for Everyone invites you to join a conversation. This book opens up topics of racism, gender and sexuality, disability and refugee policy, abuse of workers, care of children and older people, death and euthanasia, health and mental health, economic inequality, and access to education.
Clear and engaging, Social Justice Is for Everyone deals with complex issues in an accessible way. Joan Beckwith writes with empathy and feeling, raising questions rather than claiming to have ready solutions. Her insightful discussion is woven through with feminist theory, critical social theory, and examinations of power relations.
Beckwith draws on a lifetime of experience, as a retired psychologist with an enduring commitment to social justice, to craft a book for everyone. This collection of essays holds out a hand to the seasoned activist, the newly interested, and everyone in between.
