Excerpt:

This is an old story—the change in voice that signals the suppression of a brilliant young woman. Picked up by research on girls’ development, recorded by women writers in the twentieth century, it was dramatized in antiquity by Euripides in his portrayal of Iphigenia. The cure for not speaking is relationship. Because voice depends on resonance, speaking depends on relationship. The breach between inner and outer worlds or the dissociation from parts of the inner world can be healed through a talking cure.(27 pp.)
