THE DANGEROUS OLD WOMAN Myths & Stories of the Wise Woman Archetype

by | Read by Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Personal Growth • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

The revered champion of damaged and underappreciated people narrates a compelling invitation for older women to reclaim their power as leaders and evolving individuals. The dangerousness Estés writes about is not malevolence; it’s the strength women can have when they use their life experiences—joyous and painful—to stand for something, to actualize their gifts, and to defend themselves when anyone threatens what is precious or vulnerable. Captivating storytelling fleshes out the choices women have—to be stunted or exploited by cultural stereotypes or to embrace the archetype of the powerful protector whose wisdom and intentionality can change the world. With her authentic power audible in every word of her writing and narration, Estés sets an example that will stir up a “dangerous” number of life opportunities for women in their later years.
