Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Tessier (philosophy and religion, Youngstown U.) explores the links between a woman's spiritual and sexual identities. Drawing on the experience of three groups of women whose sexuality is routinely denied by society--lesbians, HIV-positive women, and women sexually abused as children--as well as on studies in religion, psychology, and her own life experience, she shows how women can overcome denial by reclaiming the whirlwind of erotic power and seeing it as a sacred force.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
