The second wave of feminism deserves recognition for its contribution to the relational ethos. I suggest that the feminist contribution to psychoanalysis has been part of a larger cultural shift toward equality, connectedness, and increased attention to human stories about real-life experiences, including trauma. In addition to expanding the ranks of analysts, women have challenged the field to examine and modify libido theory, its power alignments, and the clinical roles available to the analyst. In the clinical case, I seek to convey a feminist sensibility—rather than a program. This sensibility embodies many maternal qualities, such as concerned listening, affect attunement, mentalization, openness to the unknown, and the attribution of seriousness and meaning to the suffering other.
