Wendy’s mother is a psychologist who is deeply involved in women’s groups and women’s issues. Wendy admires her mother very much, having seen her strength tested in a very bitter divorce when Wendy was just 8 years old. Wendy believed that she, too, will be a strong and assertive woman. She avoids people (especially men) who either don’t see her in that light or try to bring out her “other sides.” She certainly steers clear of her stepmother, who (although pleasant) is a very disorganized and “artsy” person. Wendy’s college grades are very high, and her course selections reflect an unvarying interest in psychology, politics, and women’s studies. Wendy’s identity status would probably be described as _____________________.
