Patricia McBroom Gives Us a Taste of Female Divinity in the Deep Human Past
As our featured member, this Sunday Patricia Bloom will be reading a short passage from her new manuscript: She Speaks: Female Divinity and Equality in the Deep Human Past. In this work she traces the transformation of the Goddess from an earth and mother figure into a warrior Goddess of the Bronze Age. The story demonstrates that a divine female goes hand-in-hand with gender equality. Says McBloom, "Today, the female half of humanity needs its sacred mirror. The book is also part memoir, with details of what it is like to live inside a story of evolution that is written almost entirely by men, even today."
