Carol Tavris (born 1944) is an American social psychologist and author. She received a Ph. D in social psychology from the University of Michigan, and has taught psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles and the New School for Social Research. She is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal and has written for the New York Times and Los Angeles Times.

Her most well-known book, The Mismeasure of Woman (the title is a play on Stephen Jay Gould's The Mismeasure of Man) argues in favor of egalitarian feminism and against theories that advocate biological reductionism to explain differences between men and women. She has also co-authored two psychology textbooks along with Carole Wade.
