5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book for women and men alike, 5 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kissing the Hag: The Dark Goddess and the Unacceptable Nature of Women (Paperback)
This is a superb book highlighting the many different aspects of women and the dark Goddesses. Reading this as a man getting on in years I found it to be very enlightening and awe inspiring. Emma does not pull her punches and I found myself on many occassions saying, "ah yes", now i understand. This should be a must read for any on a pagan path but also for men who wish to try and understand women a lot more than perhaps they do.
The anecdotes that pepper the text are a brilliant way of getting across a point, it matters not whether they come from the author herself and im sure that they must resonate strongly with the women who read this book.
One of the best books on women and the Goddesses that ive read and ive read many. Not afraid to mix it up amid the blood and mud, this is written for real. Highly recommended.

Hello . I read your review with interest . I often hear this thing about men "not understanding women" but im sure those words are aimed at young teenage men ( not understanding) as most 45 year old women my age are married or have children or living with someone , i dont know any men who are saying they dont understand BUT you could say they dont understand me !! and why would that be ?? . This whole matter boils down to one thing *periods* . I would look as this book as a book aimed at women who have periods thats full cycle and are not using any oral contraceptives they might be using just condoms like i would do with a partner ..so your full women self is displayed and your going though ovulation and such and those diff behaviours ..now if you take a women of 45 had kids , had a hysterectomy or ovaries removed , she in no way the same as the other women ..i say this as a women with endometriosis as you wouldnt be surprised to realize if your going all your life in that natural state ..so therefore i would think this wild free side ..would be applying to a single women with no kids having periods ..but as an older man you state you are your trying to understand that ..its just about fertility which leads us to the hag thing which is Sheela na gig .!!! great ..thanks for the review . There was a menti0on of G Greer but i dont take her as writing for women with periods although there is a degree of feminist in me naturally there is in all women i am one !. Im about to wear a Sheela pendant in my eyes , just in mine it indicates fertility or meaning a women having periods so if i saw a na gig on a woman i would assume shes wearing it shes earned it shes of that state !! and having all that goes with it including hormonal changes through the month .
