Female Authority: Stages of Animus Development

This presentation introduces a model for female psychology which is unique in its combination of Jungian psychology, feminist theory, and social psychology.

This lecture is part of the set Views of the Animus, which includes the following lectures:

  2. Animus Images in Dreams, Myths, and Fairytales - Lois Khan
