She is known as a feminist psychologist, and is the author of 16 books, including the best-seller Women and Madness (1972).

Some “Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman” quotes:

  • “Before I began research for this book I was not consciously aware that women were aggressive in indirect ways, that they gossiped and ostracized each other incessantly, and did not acknowledge their own envious and competitive feelings.
