About this ebook

Dismantling powerful cultural stereotypes, this seminal feminist text reveals the powerful forces that influence women. The Jungian psychological perspective of this book, whose English publication has been referred to in mythological, psychological, literary, dramatic, and women's studies contexts, offers alternatives to the restrictive dichotomies of masculine/feminine, mother/lover, careerist/housewife. Seven archetypal goddesses, or personality types, are the basis of this discussion, from the autonomous Artemis and the cool Athena to the nurturing Demeter and the creative Aphrodite.
  Al igual que es difícil para las mujeres comprender los poderosos efectos de los esteriotipos culturales, es probable que también sean inconscientes de las fuerzas internas que influyen en qué hacen, cómo se sienten, y por qué son distintas de otras mujeres. Este libro explica que cuando una mujer comprende sus propios patrones internos puede llegar a superar toda una serie de dicotomías restrictivas, tales como: masculino/femenino, madre/amante, profesional/ama de casa, etc. Estos patrones internos toman la forma de siete diosas arquetípicas que son otros tantos tipos de personalidad, desde la autónoma Artemisa y la fría Atenea hasta la nutritiva Deméter y la creativa Afrodita.
