Maxine Mei-Fung Chung talks to Alex Clark

What Women Want: Conversations on Desire

Hay Festival 2023, 

What do women want? Through the stories of seven very different women, psychotherapist Maxine Mei-Fung Chung believes she knows the answers. From a young bride-to-be struggling to accept her sexuality, to a mother grappling with questions of identity and belonging, her book What Women Want: Conversations on Desire is an electrifying and deeply intimate examination into the inner lives of women. Join her for a liberating and insightful discussion about an age-old question, and get a deeper understanding of who we all are. Chung is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, who was awarded for her work supporting people from ethnic minorities experiencing isolation and mental health problems. She talks to journalist and editor Alex Clark.
