    1. I thought Dowling made some very great points and from my race and class position, I could definitely apply some of these principles to my life However, the suggestion to middle class women that they should hire housekeepers in order that they would have time to pursue their own dreams and goals was outright offensive to me It created this hierarchy that positioned middle class women above poorer women likely women of color who would be those housekeepers The message is that these middle class [...]

    2. I read this book in my early 20s I can say that it did change my life or got me started down the right path since my life wasn t much of anything at the time apart from being a student I was subconsciously waiting for a man to save me and probably making some choices that reflected that Because of this booked I ended up changing my direction in college university and became career focused As another reviewer has said, this is likely written from the perspective of the earlier wave of feminism I [...]

    4. Pro Feminist self help book about harmful emotional dependence still relevant todayThis is a feminist self help book which helps women become conscious about the Cinderella Complex The way societal constructs and patriarchal gender roles make women experiment both problematic emotional and financial dependence and a deep fear of independence I think these issues are really important and not discussed often often enough, because emotional and also financial dependence still affect many women tod [...]

    5. Lean in, Cinderella In 1981, Colette Dowling came to speak at our school I was 16 at the time and her son went to school with me She was a formidable figure, and her talk about her forthcoming book, The Cinderella Complex was delivered to us I have a vague feeling it was just to the girls at our school in what I remember as Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God style.She stressed the importance of financial independence, achievement at work, and spoke about an inner self who, if we were not caref [...]

    6. Buku ini sebenarnya saya pilih untuk dibaca pada hari ini bersempena Hari Wanita Sedunia Buku ini sangat menarik, malangnya saya tidak berkesempatan menghabiskan pembacaan pada hari ini Cukup setengah buku sahaja Ringkasnya, buku ini mengetengahkan bagaimana kisah dongeng Cinderella sebenarnya telah menyerap menjadi impian setiap gadis Ya, hakikatnya sindrom yang dinamakan oleh penulis sebagai Cinderella Complex ini menjelaskan bahawa kebanyakan perempuan bermimpi agar senasib sepertimana Cinder [...]

    7. As much as I d hate to admit that I feel somewhat reliant on what a man thinks of me and reliant on wanting to be taken care of , I am that way This book explores what is known as the Cinderella Complex , that little something that tends to keep women from seeking what they want, because they feel they don t deserve it.Parts of the book were hard to follow, only because it was a copy published back in the 80 s, so a lot of it seemed irrelevant Yet, if you took away the decade differences, it was [...]

    9. I read this book in my very early 20s and it was life changing I still did some dumb things based on silly assumptions, but today I am a better woman and a better mother because of reading that book.

    10. An eye opener , even if it was written in the 80 s.A lot of the pieces are powerful and speak personally to me it helps me to question my beliefs on contemporary thoughts of being independent and wanting to be taken care of.

    11. Having been written in 1981, I thought that this book might be outdated I found though that it manages to be quite timeless and remains current and useful Sad in some places in its accuracy.

    12. Yes, the hidden fear of independence internalized in women by patriarcal values A book worth reading, which makes both women and men reflect.

    13. Le Complexe de Cendrillon est un livre qui, m me si certains de ses points ne sont plus r ellement d actualit , reste fondamentalement vrai Il nous montre quel point notre ducation est d une importance majeure dans la mani re dont nous allons percevoir la vie, dans la mani re dont nous allons la vivre Un livre extr mement touchant qui a pour but de lib rer la femme et surtout de lui montrer que c est elle de se d livrer, qu elle en a les capacit s La femme qui croit en elle n a pas se leurrer av [...]

    14. No lo he terminado Aunque tiene algunas ideas interesantes, creo que para el tiempo en el que vivimos algunas exposiciones se me quedan anticuadas y no me siento muy identificada Aunque es curioso ver como la evoluci n hacia una sociedad m s igualitaria es lenta y cansada y c mo las mujeres somos las que muchas veces perpetuamos esa desigualdad.

    15. An astutely observed book Very worth while read and re read It changed for the better my understanding of the opposite sex And this was Jungian in its understanding and argument, even though I believe that Dowling is not a Jungian.

    16. Badly structured, badly written, out of date, too much about American culture, writer s experience, interviews After 120 pages I had to give up

    17. I read this book when I was just 23 and it had a profound effect on me I recommend it for every young woman.

    18. The study shows at least tentative correlation between psychological independence and the ability to experience orgasm Women who are psychologically dependent can find terrifying that moment of merger with the other, when the boundaries of personality and identity dissipate Unsure of their identities to begin with, dependent, vulnerable, and helpless, they find the moment of passionate abandonment unbearable, and refuse to give themselves up to it.

    19. The wish to be saved We may not always recognize it as clearly as this woman did, but it exists within us all, emerging when we least expect it, permeating our dreams, dampening our ambitions It s possible that woman s wish to be saved goes back to the days of cave living, when man s greater physical strength was needed to protect mothers and children from the wild But such a wish is no longer appropriate or constructive We do not need to be saved Dowling 26 It was an issue I chose not to examin [...]

    20. I m really sorry I read this book so close to the end of the recent election I thought that things were getting better in our culture, but this book written at the end of the 80 s, seemed to indicate that this just isn t so Pay disparity is still an issue Sexism is still an issue Women are still talking about asking for rights that they were talking about asking for forty years ago Women continue to want anyone male to look after them and make things ok, and simply will not risk confronting thei [...]

    21. After the long break.Finally Psyhology bookOk mybe topic can be a little bit challengingWoman who is after freedom or afraid of freedomKad na ne retildi.Ba ms z olmak neden o kadar rk t c yd.Bir erke in g lgesinde ya amay neden se er bir kad n Zor mudur asl nda yarat l nda e it oldu u ayaklar zerinde durabilece i ger e iyle y zle mek lgin bir yakla mla ele al nm farkl bir kitapt.

    22. Dowling presents a pretty self centered version of a late first wave feminist manifesto under the auspices of psychological insightI think I got really bored skimming this Not only did I disagree with it, I think Gail Carson Levine effectively disproves the fundamental rhetoric of the Cinderella Complex in Ella Enchanted Probably.

    23. This book explored the deep rooted dependency exists in many female Compared with female, males face greater developmental challenges during their childhood and hence is less susceptible to problems related to dependency But eventually, everybody has responsible for himself or herself, regardless of gender.Thought provoking though poorly structured

    24. This is a good read due to the fact that it asks many questions that are not commonly covered It takes you places that are still relevant and asks you to question the decisions you have made and the future decisions you will have to make as a women, wife and mother.

    25. I try not to complete all the books I read, but I started to loose interest when the author stopped telling her personal story and the other women were recanting their experience with the Cinderella complex Maybe I ll pick the book back up in the future.

    26. I started this in the 1980s, and it sat in my need to finish pile forever I think I liked it alot better when I started it although maybe not, since I didn t finish it right away In 2010, it seems a little dated.

    27. Well, Colette makes a bunch of generalizations for women Maybe the book was good when it first came out, but the ideas are pretty outdated Couldn t get past page 50.
