Hi. I'm in my final year at college and preparing my thesis, I would like to look at the subject of the mother goddess. I would also like to compare and contrast the role of ancient women to the portrayal of women today, in the context of art, religion, and literature. I was hoping that maybe you could suggest some information for me. I would be much appreciated Yours Sincerely, Lisa

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM and for thinking of us for help with your thesis. To learn more about the "mother goddess" I have a couple initial suggestions:

1.) Riane Eisler's The Chalice and the Blade.

2.) Women Imagine Change--an anthology that has an entire section of spirituality which has a few references and many resources on the mother goddess.

3.) Delving into indigenous cultures and specifically Native American writings.
