“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” -ELEANOR ROOSEVELT Illustrated by Elisabeth Slettnes.

"Imagine a world where the girl-child's birth is celebrated with as much pomp, circumstance, and opportunity as her brother's; where her body and natural processes are honored without shame and violence; and where she is allowed equal access to its pulpits and altars, thrones, boardrooms, and negotiating tables. Together, let us imagine into being such a world." ~Patricia Lynn Reilly Painting by Elisabeth Slettnes

“An uneasy reaction to the word Goddess is common among women. Thousands of years of repression, hostility, and conditioning against a Divine Mother have made a deep impression on us. We’ve been conditioned to shrink back from the Sacred Feminine, to fear it, to think of it as sinful, even to revile it. And it would take a while for me to deprogram that reaction, to unpack the word and realize that in the end, Goddess is just a word. It simply means the divine in female form.” ~Sue Monk Kidd

Our Mother who art within us, Each breath brings us to you. Thy wisdom come, Thy will be done, as we honor your presence within us. You give us this day all that we need. Your bounty calls us to give and receive all that is loving and pleasurable. You are the courage that moves us to be true to ourselves. For you are the Mother of All Things. Your body is the Sacred Earth and our bodies. Your love nurtures us and unites us all. Now and forever more. -DALE ALLEN

“My thoughts are my own—I will not modify them to receive the approval of others. My feelings are my own—I will not silence them to make others comfortable. My life is my own—I will not shape it according to the expectations of others. I live in harmony with my natural cycles, deepest wisdom, and truest self. And so it is.” – Patricia Lynn Reilly Painting by Elisabeth Slettnes

"Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge." ~Andrea Dworkin "Balloon Perspective" by Elisabeth Slettnes
