Mad, undesirable and unhappy.
From the melancholy suffered by way of Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath to the psychological ache and addictions of iconic beauties Zelda Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe. From Freud and Jung and the novel breakthroughs of psychoanalysis to Lacan's development of a contemporary circulation and the recent women-centred treatments.
This is the tale of the way now we have understood psychological problems and severe states of brain in girls during the last 2 hundred years and the way we conceive of them this present day, whilst an increasing number of of our internal lifestyles and feelings became an issue for medics and therapists.
