This chapter uses Turkey, the stopping place of Ruth Wilmanns Lidz and Edith Weigert, to offer a powerful comparison to the relative openness that several women found in the Baltimore area of the United States. The effect of forced emigration on the lives and work of Lidz, Weigert, and Frieda Fromm-Reichmann is then addressed. Women, especially emigrant women such as Weigert and Lidz, experienced difficult working conditions in Turkey. Weigert was close to both Fromm-Reichmann and Lidz, and also gained a major role in American psychoanalytic circles shortly after her emigration to the United States. Their challenges in American society resulted in commonality among them, and they continued their psychoanalytic work on psychoses, which they began in their homelands, and made important contributions in that field in United States.

Keywords:   Ruth Wilmanns Lidz, Edith Weigert, Frieda Fromm-Reichmann, United States, Turkey, emigration, American psychoanalysis, psychoses
