Event description

Description

The election of an unabashedly patriarchal man as US President was a shock for many—despite decades of activism on gender inequalities and equal rights, how could it come to this? What is it about patriarchy that seems to make it so resilient and resistant to change? Undoubtedly it endures in part because some people benefit from the unequal advantages it confers. But is that enough to explain its stubborn persistence?

In their recently published and highly original book Why does patriarchy persist? Carol Gilligan and Naomi Snider argue that patriarchy persists, in part, because it serves psychological functions.

--Can moves from healthy protest to despair and detachment be tracked in the clinical situation and how can the anger of hope be distinguished from the anger of despair?

--Can psychotherapy in its liberatory impulse encourage a healthy resistance to patriarchy's persistence?

—Do the structures of patriarchy play out clinically in the therapist-patient relationship and with respect to termination?
