Inside dust jacket:
The goals of the women’s movement and its far-reaching effects are well documented. But how do they relate to the lives of individual women? What are the feminist issues in the areas of love, sex, work, and motherhood, and how are they experienced by real people? How are the learned behaviors and attitudes of women, such as the need to appear passive or to feel helpless and victimized, reflected in their relations with lovers, children, employers – and even with their therapists?

As a feminist, Elizabeth Williams empathizes with women’s struggles for new identities and life-styles and appreciates the extent to which their problems are shared by other women. As a psychotherapist, she is in a unique position to observe women changing and to contribute to the success of their efforts to win power and independence. The women whose stories are presented here are patients in therapy, but their problems are no different from those that trouble most other modern women, and the insights Ms. Williams offers in the context of therapy apply to non-patients as well as patients – and frequently to men as well as women. Her willingness to draw for illustration on events in her own life, painful as well as triumphant, makes vividly clear both the common roots of women’s problems and the possibility of surmounting them to achieve joy and freedom. Non-doctrinaire as a feminist, unorthodox as a therapist, outspoken as a writer, Ms. Williams has produced a book that offers compassionate – and, more important, shrewd – advice to help any woman attain her full measure of life’s satisfactions.
