Feminine psychology is a term sometimes used to describe and categorize issues concerning the gender related psychology of female human identity, as well as the issues that women confront during their lives.

One stream emphasises gender differences and has a scientific and empirical approach, while the other, more therapeutic in orientation, is more closely aligned to the psychoanalytic tradition, pionnered by neo-Freudian Karen Horney. It also relates to concepts such as femininity and marianismo.
