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.
