To Freud, female sexuality remained something of a mystery: a riddle and a dark continent. He urged his female colleagues to enlighten him. Many have since done so - and this book is a most vivid and illuminating contribution to the field. The author explores why the quality of their bodies is fundamental to women's psychology; how this may lead to self-mutilation; and how such perverse behavior may also be aimed at objects which women see as their own creations, specifically, their babies. The potential causes and consequences of these conditions, including maternal and paternal incest and its frequent aftermath, prostitution, are also discussed.

From the Back Cover:

Motherhood confers immense powers, whick some women misuse because of their own emotional problems and the social expectations placed upon them. In these unfortunate cases, mothers may batter, commit incest, or prevent their children from understanding or accepting their core gender-identity. Estela Welldon believes that mothers often see their children as extensions of themselves, and that this type of mistreatment is a form of self-inflicted wound.
