Unabridged Chick

I'm Audra, a 30-something married lesbian. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.
The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets - Barbara G. Walker I'm all of feminist examinations of history (for a stellar example, see Joanna Russ' How to Suppress Women's Writing) but Walker's works are, unfortunately, far from academic, poorly researched, and badly written. It's one thing if she stuck to novels, but sadly, she presents this volume as a piece of non-fiction, meant to be a reference. Unfortunately, she succumbs to the worst of the Burning Times Syndrome -- i.e., she inflates data and numbers for the sake of her argument, and leaps to conclusions so ludicrous you can't take anything she says seriously.
