Women Who Run With The Wolves (Paperback)Clarissa Pinkola Estes (author)
A book that has risen to become a modern classic, Estes brilliantly readable and enlightening volume expounds upon the innate wildness of women that has historically been repressed and belittled by patriarchal systems.
In the classic Women Who Run With the Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes tells us about the 'wild woman', the wise and ageless presence in the female psyche that gives women their creativity, energy and power.
For centuries, the 'wild woman' has been repressed by a male-orientated value system which trivialises women's emotions. Using a combination of time-honoured stories and contemporary casework, Estes reveals that the 'wild woman' in us is innately healthy, passionate and wise.
Thoughtfully written and compelling in its arguments, Women Who Run With The Wolves gives readers a new sense of direction, a self confidence and purpose in their lives.
Barely reviewed on publication, Women Who Run with the Wolves grew from word-of-mouth recommendation to become a worldwide bestseller with a clear and confident message about women’s freedom and significance in the world.
