    On Freud’s “Femininity” (Graciela Abelin-Sas Rose and Leticia Glocer Fiorini, editors) assembles a group of international, contemporary psychoanalytic authors dedicated to studies on women and the feminine with the objective of displaying points of concordance and discordance in relation to Freudian proposals.

    Discourse on women has changed greatly since Freud’s time. It coincides with deep changes experienced by women and the feminine position, at least in most of the Western world. It is common knowledge that contraceptives, assisted fertilization, advances in women’s rights, evidently growing sublimation capacities, and demonstrations of professional success have changed ideas regarding an eternal and immutable feminine nature. The authors contributing to On Freud’s “Femininity” are interested in illuminating ways in which these changes have or have not influenced psychoanalytic debate in relation to the feminine. This implies renewing the question of what is authentically feminine and whether there is any essential truth concerning the feminine.
