Format: Paperback
I ran into Sonia Johnson at the first continental Bioregional Congress in 1984 when she was running for president as the Citizens Party candidate. She was the first woman to get federal matching funds to run for president, but she had little or no support from the national media. Beginning in 1977 she campaigned indefatigably for the Equal Rights Amendment, denouncing her church's (Mormon) opposition to the amendment. This resulted in her excommunication from the church.

My summary of Wildfire: There was a flourishing culture oriented around women for tens of thousands and perhaps hundreds of thousand of years. Patriarchy is a relatively new and weak culture based on control and violence. It is now (the book was written in 1991) going down and taking everything with it. Women's most crucial task is to deprogram ourselves from patriarchy's brainwashing, including the guilt of mothers. Since women do 2/3 of the world's work, make 1/10 of its money, and own less than 1/100 of its property, our resources are keeping it going. Each woman has to figure out for herself how she gives her power to men. We need to let go of letting male partners or children be responsible for our feelings and to find our source of satisfaction within ourselves.

Format: Paperback
My name is Collette Marie and I buy books on Amazon with my friend Ron's assistance.

This is a stunningly brilliant book (I think of it as being a companion volume to Going Out of Our Minds, another wonderful book by Sonia Johnson) that shines in the darkness of an unjust and painful world. I totally love and resonate with the ideas Ms. Johnson expresses therein -- she is my favorite feminist, as her insights are the most original, inspirational, and visionary of all the feminists I have read. I agree that our patriarchal, anti-life social systems have ripped us all off, men and women alike (though, like Sonia, I think women have gotten a much more rotten deal than men).

These two books are a creative journey into a new way of BEING in the world -- in which ALL life, including that of animals and nature -- is loved and valued and honored. A beautiful book, a joy to read.

Format: Paperback
This self-published marvel is a classic of nuttiness. Inspired by Mary Daly, this somehow manages to be even cruder and crankier.
