Anna Freud [ 19] has described the function of the ego as a bulwark against the quantity of drives. I think that this quantitative aspect of drive pressure de­ pends very much on psychosocial development. A person whose potentialities as a person have no place in the his­ torical trends of his time simply is more upset about what drives him amorphously, more inclined to regress and thus also more bothered with infantile remnants in his sexuality. You can see in any number of young people that they can take sexuality in their stride, can weather crises, and absorb some severe mistakes.

Many women consider this suggestion-that women may yet contribute something specifically femi­ nine to so-far masculine fields-only a new form of dis­ crimination. Yet there is a sudden general awareness which has gripped this country in the last few years that something is yet missing in American women's emancipa­ tion. Quite recently, President Johnson has declared that he wants women in government both for their ability and in order to bring some feminine influence to bear on that sphere. But, as you suggest, perhaps even the first round of emancipation has not been won here.
