Constructing and Deconstructing Woman's Power explores power and gender issues from a variety of psychoanalytic, as well as social, cultural and philosophical perspectives. The first three papers examine the complex notion of external and internal glass ceiling brought to life by clear and illustrative clinical vignettes. The creation of life, a uniquely female power, is subsequently considered in two fascinating papers exploring motherhood and the conflicts it brings. The development and expression of feminine creativity more generally is further examined in two unique studies. The final three essays address men's relation to women and their power.
