Surefooted and strong, capable and potent; these women are archetypes that we need now more than ever. While feminism is a relatively new concept in the scope of human history, women have been rebelling for as long as they have been subjugated. Their stories come from across the globe and are woven through every faith, and prove that the lineage of women who dare to reclaim their power is deep, storied, and strong.
Join Catland Books & co-owner Melissa Madara as we explore these stories and fairy tales. In this workshop, we will discuss the importance of narrative for healing, what the function of storytelling is to the human mind, and re-tell the myths & accounts of true icons of feminine soverignty. Join us as we speak their names, retell their myths, conjure their memories, and celebrate their lives.
