"Misogyny, Projective Identification, and Mentalization" by Karyne Messina looks at how the psychoanalytic concepts of projective identification and mentalization may explain the construction of society and how they have enabled misogyny to be expressed in social, political, and institutional settings. Messina explores how misogyny has affected the perception and treatment of women through analysis of a range of examples of individual women and groups.
With specific reference to the erasure of women’s contributions in society, both individually and collectively, and the trauma that arises from the many effects of regarding women as a group as "less" or "other," this is a book that sets a new agenda for understanding how misogyny is expressed socially. "Misogyny, Projective Identification, and Mentalization" will be of interest to psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists as well as scholars of politics, gender, and cultural studies.
