It was suggested through POWRL that I contact members of the PCP list for
information on the following. I am a student at the University of Hawai'i
majoring in psychology.

I am in the process of writing a paper for a graduate level feminist
theory class dealing with Lacan's theory of psychotherapy, and its value
in describing female desire. My question is two part, first is there
another theory out that that adequately explains female desire. The
second part of this question is, is there a theory that does this without
delving into psychotherapy and the unconscious. I will be eternally
grateful for any help with this.

For a private response my e-mail address is
