The Curse of the Oscar or the shadow side of women's development

Denise Gimenez Ramos (SBrPA)

This lecture aims to reflect on the unconscious dynamics that sustain the shocking increase in feminicide in the world. It is observed that psychological and physical violence by the intimate partner has numerous facets, especially when the woman gains more or has more professional success than her partner. This violence can take a subtle form as rejection and betrayal in order to hurt the woman and destroy her self-esteem and success.

Despite the evolution of women, historical violence reverberates in the 21st century as an intergenerational trauma causing great suffering in families and disturbances in interpersonal relationships.

Denise Gimenez Ramos PhD is Professor at the Post Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology at Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo. She is a member of SBPA (IAAP) and the author of several books and articles.
