"...myth is real...creation is literal. It matters very much what our myths are; it matters very much what we create, for in a world whose Creation myth is not earth-based, one that does not include a vision of the Earth's renewal, we can literally read in the papers every day the actual story of the 'Wasteland'."

Gloria Feman Orenstein

The Reflowering of the Goddess


"...I had discovered from the research I had done...that I did indeed have a context. This context extends back in time hundreds of years and consists not only of countless writings by women but also of a large body of art that, to my mind, evidences a different perspective from the art of men, along with a range of responses to the questions with which I was then concerned, questions concerning the nature of female identity."
