In bringing together the contributions of psychoanalytic theory and sociological analysis, this work explores the interrelationship between the inner and outer worlds which impact on a woman's identity. How a woman's experience is depicted by and perceived by the society of which she is a part profoundly affects how she experiences herself. This book seeks to explore that dynamic in relation to key life stages (such as infancy, adolescence and older age) and in terms of key issues such as relationships, work and family. It moves beyond those past divisions between psychotherapy and sociological, gender and cultural studies that have fractured our understanding of the development of a personal gender identity. It should help therapists in their practices to draw upon a well-rounded and deeper analysis of women's inner and outer worlds.
