Section for the Advancement of Women

The Section for the Advancement of Women (SAW) welcomes academic, practitioner, consulting, and other counseling psychologists, both professionals and students, who are interested in working together toward advancing women in the field. As an organization, we are commited to addressing issues pertinent to women from the perspective of diverse theoretical frameworks, examining issues of power, multiple oppressions, and multiple privileges. We utilize a feminist process to allow for collective decision-making and empowerment of all members. The SAW is actively striving toward becoming a home for all women in Counseling Psychology, values the perspectives of diverse groups, and is actively pursuing coalition-building with sister organizations and other activist Division 17 Sections, APA Divisions, and related groups.
