Feminine Psychology

Feminine psychology is a term used to describe issues concerning the gender of psychology of female human identity, and the issues that women face throughout their lives. Karen Horney “began work on her version of feminine psychology in 1922, when she became the first woman to present a paper on the topic at an international psychoanalytic congress” (Schultz 170). She countered Sigmund Freud’s concept of penis envy with what she called womb envy.
