Women Under the Influence

Edited by Janja Lalich, this special issue of Cultic Studies Journal explores issues of dominance, control, and exploitation of women in groups. Chapters examine why women are attracted to totalist groups, how they are manipulated, and how they can be helped. Personal accounts provide dramatic examples of the issues discussed.
