“What Do Women Want Today?”
November 8th and 9th, North America COWAP Conference: “What Do Women Want Today?” Washington DC, (USA).
Today, women are exploring new gender identities, gender dynamics, and family configurations. They want to be thought of as whole persons and free themselves from the echoes of a misogynistic sociocultural history. Of course, each woman will have her own answer.
Leading international thinkers in the field will discuss contemporary answers to Freud’s classic question “what do women want?”
Virginia Ungar, IPA President will deliver the keynote lecture: “Authority, Power and Gender in Institutional Life.” This will be followed by presentations by Graciela Abelin-Sas Rose, Patricia Alkolombre, Rosemary Balsam, Cecile R. Bassen, Margarita Cereijido, Paula L. Ellman, Elizabeth Fritsch, Leticia Glocer Fiorini, Nancy R. Goodman, Adrienne Harris, Janice S. Lieberman, Adriana Prengler, Arlene Kramer Richards, and Giselle Carino, CEO, International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere.
The conference will have four sessions: Current Theories about the Feminine, Gender Relations Today, Psychoanalysis in the Community, and Contemporary Feminine Scenarios. The conference’s chairs are Margarita Cereijido and Nancy Goodman.
