About the Author:

Barbara G. Walker, author of The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets, The Woman's Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects, and many other books, is a member of the Morris Museum Mineralogical Society and the Trailside Mineral Club of the New Jersey Earth Science Association.

From Library Journal:

Readers familiar with Walker's The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets ( LJ 2/1/84) will recognize much of the material in this new book and will appreciate its more coherent presenta tion. Walker uses the material to illus trate her theory that patriarchy has de stroyed the revered roles filled by women in prehistoric matriarchal soci eties. Likewise, she is convinced that the Christian church destroyed the women's religion that existed in these societies. Only by recovering societal roles embodying positive power for women can males be called into judg ment for their abuses of the earth and its peoples. Walker's attacks on men and on organized religion will be offen sive to some readers, but the book has many good points to make. Recom mended for larger public and academic libraries.
