Some people asked about Complex PTSD as a diagnosis (something that has been lobbied for for at least a couple of decades and excluded again from the DSM-5, though there is a new symptom dimension) in the post that I had about diagnosis. If you want to learn more about the politics of diagnosis and Complex PTSD and the work of Judith Herman, who works for the Victims of Violence program and wrote the landmark book, Trauma and Recovery, there is this great podcast from University of Buffalo that I would urge you to check out.

She definitely has some interesting stuff to say about the oppression of women in general, especially in terms of how we conceptualize trauma.
