Rape and Communicative Agency: Reflections in the Lake at L

Hypatia 8 (4):56 - 71 (1993)
Abstract
Freud's case study of "Dora" ignores indications that her symptoms might have resulted from a fear of rape. Drawing on feminist adaptations of Lacan, this paper suggests that fear of rape may serve as a horizon for women's ability to perceive themselves as efficacious speakers. Freud's failure to recognize this fear may reflect men's unwillingness to acknowledge their own role in rape as well as anxiety over the possibility of losing his own credibility.
