It all comes together in The Crone. But be warned, don't read this book unless you're willing to be intellectually challenged vis a vis religion, language, anthropology, and feminism.
It also made me wonder what were the motivations of males to destroy women as spiritual leaders of society. It causes me to wonder if men feel so 'inferior' to women that they destroyed them and substituted their own (male) figures --- or that there could have been a homosexual hatred of women out of jealousy of women --- this latest question is from me personally and not from Walker --- and due to some of the heinous cruelty against women in the early Catholic church from male-only 'priests/monks.' As well as the horrible male acts against women throughout the world today.
At any rate, Walker's book is important to re-establish fundamental priorities of human culture, society and values --- for all of our survival and well being --- and HAPPINESS.
