Witches, Heretics & Warrior Women features transformational tales of strong women from folklore and history. Also included are rituals, spellcraft, and workings for you to try. In this book, the author examines the issues that rebels, witches, warriors, and heretics deal with as they face a patriarchal society.
Each chapter tells a story of a particular historical or mythical character. Such as Circe, Anne Boleyn, Marie Laveau, Mary Magdalene, Jeanne D'Arc, Salome, Boudicca, Moving Robe Woman, and Harriet Tubman. With each story, she gives you a different version of events that coincide with things that women need to embrace and understand about themselves.
For the most part, I have to say that the only thing that I didn't like was the first half of the book. Mainly because it just regurgitates a lot of what you're going to be reading. Also, it is giving you the same propaganda femininity that you read in a lot of metaphysical empowerment books for women. Mind you not everything she says in the first half of the book is that.
This book was I opening on all these historical and folklore characters that have a very intricate and interesting story. I felt like if I was getting to know them and I could see and relate to a lot of what happened to them. I was very pleased that she took the time to write about toxic positivity and the law of attraction. How some people can take it to extremes and make it abusive and as a form of gaslighting. She also lets you know that it's okay if you are a different type of witch. So if you practice differently from other people there's no right or wrong way. Something that I have had an issue with for many years with other witches.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. 90% of this book is amazing I loved it and it was something that I needed to read.
If you want to read something that is empowering by using feminine energy this is definitely the book for you. It doesn't overdo the whole girl power feminist agenda. But at the same time, it doesn't water down the importance of embracing that feminine power that is within you whether you are male or female.
