Freud's theory of psychoanalysis, however, does have its problems. One of its drawbacks is that it is based on the assumption that repressed conflicts and impulses do in fact exist. Today this assumption is being challenged, and is provoking intense debate. Freud first developed these methods of psychoanalysis when he met with patients whose disorders did not make neurological sense. A patient, for example, may have suddenly gone blind.
For example, there were women who had "deep cuts or tears" in their ligaments but, thanks to Freud, were conditioned to believe that they weren't enjoying sex because of some sort of mental issue. It seems that rejecting a dangerously misogynistic ideology that caters to the ego and desires of men was a huge step towards prioritizing the lived experiences of women.

She was labeled as a confessional poet and biographical and historical material is absolutely necessary to understand her work. Syliva Plath was born on 27, 1963, in Boston, Massachusetts to Otto Emil Plath and Aurelia Schober.
Despite her mother’s wishes, Jackson was anything but a beautiful fool. The constant struggle against her mother’s negative feedback towards the person she wanted Jackson to be, influenced the view she had about women being capable to do more with their lives.

She was both praised and ridiculed for her sexual exploits and other actions, which further confounded her. She detached from her personal reality and instead conformed to what others expected her to be, complying to their desires to receive affection. She kept her distance from people, even those whom she desired to connect with. A short biographical account is required to fully understand her personality development, after which we will apply a couple theories to her personality: Karen Horney’s theory and Erik Erikson’s theory, specifically his psychosocial stages of development. Marilyn Monroe was born as Norma Jeane Mortensen on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California.
