You Goddess!

£9.99

Why settle for mere mortal excellence when you could be living like a goddess? This title takes us on a colourful tour of ancient deities and legends through the prism of female power, sharing the mythical stories of 25 goddesses from every corner of the globe. From famous divas like Athena to less familiar heroines such as the Japanese dawn goddess Uzume, the Mayan ‘jaguar goddess of midwifery’ Ixchel and the African mermaid spirit Mami Wata, E. Foley and B. Coates show how the tales of these deities have been depicted by men over the centuries, revealing the ancient roots of toxic female stereotypes (the damsel in distress, the selfless mother, the tempting harlot). Beautifully illustrated and fizzing with their signature feminist spirit, they reclaim these inspirational women for a new generation – and bring empowering mythical magnificence and celestial chutzpah into our daily lives.
