Misogyny has stepped into the foreground of our national attention, and psychoanalysis has something important to contribute to an understanding of patriarchy and the hatred of women. I will start the evening with a short presentation about several psychoanalytic texts that have been illuminating to me about this topic. Then I’ll turn to the work of John Berger and his ideas about the male gaze, as an introduction to a discussion of the objectification of women. I hope this will be followed by a conversation amongst those present.
