Female identity, through Freud’s lens, takes on a tragic note

(After these phrase, there are negative things on woman's develpement compared to men)


I understand the highlighted is related something negative,

but I can't get the clear meaning.

What does it mean?

Thank you so much.

    I guess to paraphrase: Female identity, through Freud's lens, has a more unfortunate melody.

    (I don't believe that, I'm just paraphrasing what I think it means.)
