Wild Women

"Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, 
a powerful force, filled with good instincts, 
passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. 
Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species. 
Though the gifts of the wildish nature come to us at birth, 
society's attempt to "civilize" us into rigid roles has plundered 
this treasure, and muffled the deep, life-giving messages 
of our own souls. 
Without Wild Woman, 
we become over-domesticated, fearful, uncreative, trapped."

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
