Description: Notions of woman and the feminine have changed dramatically over the last decades and this is reflected in how women perceive themselves, how they are perceived by society, and how this is understood from a psychoanalytic perspective.  Inspired by the title of Juliet Mitchell’s iconic book, “Women: The longest revolution,” we will explore the ongoing changes experienced by the female psychoanalyst, including analytic training and later professional life. It will discuss issues about prejudice, authority, and working online.

Virginia Ungar will talk about her struggles as the first IPA woman president in 102 years, and will have a conversation with Margarita Valladares, a psychoanalytic candidate, and Margarita Cereijido. The audience will reflect with the presenters about how our thinking has changed.
