Book: The Heroine's Journey
By: Maureen Murdock
Pages: 232
Release Date: June 23, 1990
Stars: 2

This book is an examination of what it takes for women to survive in a male dominated society, and the sacrifices that they make for that survival. There is also a great deal of examination on what the author believes is needed to heal not only society as a whole, but women specifically (with many examples from not only her own life, but the lives of women that she has come into contact with).
