A Night In with

Maxine Mei-Fei Chung

10 February 2023 – 24 February 2023

Join psychoanalytic psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and writer Maxine Mei-Fung Chung to celebrate the publication of her new book What Women Want.

Through the profound and moving stories of seven very different women, Maxine sheds light on the most fundamental needs and desires of women. From a young bride-to-be struggling to accept her sexuality, to a mother grappling with questions of identity and belonging, and a woman learning to heal after years of trauma, What Women Want is an electrifying and deeply intimate examination into the inner lives of women.

Based on hours of conversations between Maxine and her patients, this book lays bare women’s fears, hopes, secrets and capacity for healing. With great empathy and precision, What Women Want presents a fearless look into the depths of who women are. In conversation for this unique virtual event, Maxine will delve into her inspirations for writing this book and the journey involved in collating the testimonies of the women who helped shape it. What Women Want shows how liberation and empowerment are possible and deeply desired by women. Tune in to this powerful and deeply inspirational event.

“I couldn’t stop thinking about these women’s stories. The best book on female desire and longing since Three Women”  Abigail Bergstrom

“Maxine’s book is insightful, tender and brilliant. I am enraptured by these women’s stories.”  Katy Hessel
