Feminist Perspectives on Social Work Practice is a contemporary look at the issues across a wide spectrum, beyond just equal pay for equal work and reproductive rights, with which women struggle on a daily basis. The Trump administration's call to roll back the progress that women have made
over the decades in terms of social welfare benefits, reproductive rights, and employment recognition, alongside the continuing victimization of women who have survived sexual violence, are just a few examples demonstrating why social workers and other human service professionals need to continue to
advocate and care for women in particular ways.

This book aims to continue keeping the lives of women and the issues that affect and matter most to them at the forefront of the discussions about society and social services. The text will help readers to gain an understanding of populations of women that they might/will work with in the field of
human services. Using demographics, case studies, and best practice/evidence-based programs, the authors collectively provide students and practitioners with a comprehensive knowledge of women from a feminist perspective.

Shannon Butler-Mokoro, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at Salem State University. She has been a second generation clinical social worker with experience in mental health and substance abuse. Her teaching expertise and research interests are in cultural competence, social welfare history, women, and faith-based agencies and social work/spirituality. Laurie Grant, MSW, is a licensed clinical social worker in a private practice (called Reaching a Fork in the Road) north of Boston. Specializing in working with clients who struggle with obsessive compulsive disorder, hoarding, and anxiety, Laurie supervises and teaches students advocacy and social work practice skills at the School of Social Work at Salem State University and North Shore Community College.
