Panal Report

After our Bodies Ourselves

Batya R. Monder, MSW, BCD

The panel “After Our Bodies Ourselves,” organized by Section III (Women, Gender, and Psychoanalysis), focused on the trajectory that feminism took since the publication in the early 1970s of Our Bodies Ourselves. Each of the five panelists had her own approach to the broad topic. Papers covered a historical overview of some of the societal changes effecting women in the past few decades in the United States; the psychodynamic impact of elective bodyaltering surgeries on adult women and adolescent girls; an introduction to a new construct—object orientation—and its implications in the rethinking of the construct of gender; and a case study about a woman with a snake phobia.
