I have recently read a book that I think all women should read. It is called The Red Tent by Anita Diamant and while it proclaims itself to be “the greatest love story never told”, it is the way the women celebrate their moon cycles that is moving. Although they are kept separate from the men in the red tent, it is a time of sharing ancestral stories and celebrating the blood that they shed. It is a shame in today’s society that it is seen as a curse from God via Eve instead of a blessing from Mother Earth.
