Women on Power
Edited by Penny Rosenwasser
Feminist movements have made a profound impact on both spiritual and political practices; as a multicultural collection of interviews with women about the complexities of personal and social empowerment, this book connects the two through the voices of activists, healers and artists, poets and politicians. The uniqueness of Visionary Voices lies in the diversity of its contributors—including Deena Metzger, Papusa Molina, Fran Peavey, Winona LaDuke and many more—and their collective dismantling of the false dichotomy between spiritual and political growth.
I felt inspired hearing women discuss their efforts to create revolution as well as meaningful personal lives.
An exceptionally relevant collection, carefully put together and skillfully edited; it belongs in every library collection.
Visionary Voices is a significant contribution to women’s studies and highly recommended for anyone interested in women’s spirituality as well.
