Reviews and Endorsements

‘The strength and the tremendous impact of this book lie in its clarity, its multifaceted themes, its freedom from ideology, and its deep contact with the real condition of women and children in the world, which is so frequently and dramatically tragic. Vivian Pender, together with highly recognized colleagues, has for years given voice to psychoanalysis at the United Nations. There can be no residual doubt, after having read this volume, about the immensely important social function of psychoanalysis in the contemporary world, promoting an unending work in progress through awareness, humanization and civilization.’
- Stefano Bolognini, President of the International Psychoanalytical Association

‘Vivian Pender has brought together a wonderfully diverse array of authors who examine the role of women in a wide variety of situations from a largely psychoanalytic point of view. This book is terrific, making us think anew about a set of age-old problems that beset all nations and peoples. This book should be required reading for everyone.’
- Elizabeth L. Auchincloss, MD, Vice Chair for Education, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

‘This book bridges the gap between theory and practice in global feminism in an unusually robust way.’
- Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, PhD, University Professor in the Humanities and Founding Member of the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society at Columbia University
