Femininity is a source of shame for some men and women. Scholarship and therapeutic practice have not reckoned with femininity of its shamefulness in helpful, healing ways. Thus, women and men continue to hide their 'feminine' selves. This book asserts the positive worth and power of femininity for men and women; men's and women's need for validation of their femininity; and the need to create child-rearing and therapeutic practices that achieve incorporation of femininity in men's conscious self-understanding.
