So this is the strong Sex. Women in Psychoanalysis

Special Exhibition, starting October 16, 2015

The Sigmund Freud Museum is dedicating the special exhibition “So this is the strong Sex.” Women in Psychoanalysis to women from the early history of psychoanalysis. Marie Marie Bonaparte, Helene Deutsch, Emma Eckstein, Anna Freud, Lou Andreas-Salomé and Sabina Spielrein had a major influence on the work of Sigmund Freud and on the development of psychoanalysis.

“So this is the strong sex” – Emma Eckstein is said to have once greeted Sigmund Freud with this ironic allusion. Succinctly, this quotation conveys the possible new interpretations of predominant gender roles. As patients, these women provided Sigmund Freud with the basis for his discovery of the unconscious; the “father of psychoanalysis” himself confirms how he developed his treatment method known as the “talking cure” together with them.
