Description


What guts. What attitude These are the immortals I wish I'd learned about at school. -- Olivia Colman

Channel the feminist power of mythical goddesses in this witty, inspirational gift.

Why settle for mere mortal excellence when you could be living like a goddess?

Want to break free from what's holding you back?
Channel the Norse warrior goddess Freyja

Feeling stressed?
Turn the playful Japanese goddess Uzume for a superheroine superboost

Tired of being nice?
Meet the Irish goddess The Morrigan, a regal renegade who doesn't care what anyone thinks of her.

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). Now it's time to reclaim their female powers for a new generation;

You Goddess takes us on a colorful 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. In this irreverent guide these fierce and fantastic deities will help you to stop apologizing, keep your cool, embrace your body and get what you are owed. Divinely illustrated by Georgia Perry, You Goddess will help you conquer today's world.
