‘This is the core of our task: to respect and revere ourselves, and so bring about a world in which women are respected and revered, recognised once again as holding the life-giving power of the earth itself.’

If Women Rose Rooted has been described as both transformative and essential. Sharon Blackie leads the reader on a quest to find their place in the world, drawing inspiration from the wise and powerful women in native mythology, and guidance from contemporary role models who have re-rooted themselves in land and community and taken responsibility for shaping the future.

Beautifully written, honest and moving, If Women Rose Rooted is a passionate song to a different kind of femininity, a rallying, feminist cry for the rewilding of womanhood; reclaiming our role as guardians of the land.

‘Powerful and inspiring.’

Melissa Harrison, author of All Among the Barley


‘Mind-blowing. An anthem for all we could be . . . I sincerely hope every woman who can read has the time and space to read it.’

Manda Scott, author of Boudica and A Treachery of Spies
