Women Who Run With The Wolves

Contacting the Power of the Wild Woman




The 2 million-copy bestselling cult feminist classic

'Everyone should read this book' Maya Angelou

'Estés points to storytelling, our ancient narratives, as a way for women to reconnect to the Wild Woman all women have within themselves, but have lost' Emma Watson

Go out in the woods, go out. If you don't go out in the woods nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.

Within every woman, there lies a powerful force of energy, creativity and self-knowing: their wild woman. For centuries, she has been repressed by a male-orientated value system that trivialises her emotions. Until now.

With a combination of time-honoured stories, myths, fairy tales and casework, this is the feminist classic loved by over 2 million women, that will set you on a beautiful path to unleash your inner wild.
