‘Mind-blowing. An anthem for all we could be … I sincerely hope every woman who can read has the time and space to read it.’ Manda Scott, Boudica and Into the Fire
‘A powerful and inspiring exploration of the female relationship with landscape.’ Melissa Harrison, At Hawthorn Time
‘This is the core of our task: to respect and revere ourselves, and so bring about a world in which women are respected and revered, recognised once again as holding the life-giving power of the earth itself.’
A life-changing journey from the wasteland of modern society to a place of nourishment and connection.
If Women Rose Rooted has been described as both transformative and essential. Sharon Blackie leads the reader on a quest to find their place in the world, drawing inspiration from the wise and powerful females in native mythology, and guidance from contemporary women who have re-rooted themselves in land and community and taken responsibility for shaping the future.
Beautifully written, honest and moving, If Women Rose Rooted is a passionate song to a different kind of femininity, a rallying cry for women to reawaken their natural power – not just for the sake of their own wellbeing, but for love of this threatened earth.
