MORAES, Gisele Cristiane Senne de  and  COELHO JUNIOR, Nelson Ernesto. Female gender and psychoanalysis: a study on psychoanalytical literature. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.4, pp.791-800. ISSN 1413-7372.

This work will introduce the results obtained by a research of woman and female gender representation in psychoanalytical literature, which was made by analyzing articles published either during the feminist movement’s peak or in the present time. The research allowed us to verify that articles written during the feminist movement’s peak were attached to the phallic logic (of having or not having) regarding women’s psychic development. Recent articles show a wider range of aspects, which also include the castration complex issues with its implicit phallic logic. The speech regarding the female gender during the feminist movement’s peak shows the importance of the phallic-binary logic, by trying to establish a place to women different than the negative of men, while the same speech in recent times is more focused in setting up a specific field for women in psychoanalysis.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; woman; feminism.
