Why is love so important to women? Why are women supposedly more devastated than men when they separate? We are often told that women are very difficult to satisfy – if this is true, what has displeasure to do with femininity? Do women visit psychoanalysts more than men do? If so, is it because they suffer more? Is there any chance of finding a point of convergence between the “sexes”? Freud said that femininity is a dark continent, while Lacan described loving as giving something which you do not have. Iro Zoubopoulou will try to elucidate these enigmatic phrases and to shed some psychoanalytic light on femininity.
