Abstract

In view of my mother's powerful impact on my life, I wanted to see what psychologists had learned about the mother-daughter relationship. Historically this matter has received scant attention. In our western culture, women have been traditionally regarded through their relationship to men, as wives and mothers. The idea of a woman as an individual and separate person is just now developing in modern ego psychology and the feminist movement. With this new sense of woman's personal identity and value, the mother-daughter bond becomes more significant.
