In this post, I’ll recommend 4 books for the International Women’s Day. To celebrate it, here are 4 excellent books about Women, Goddesses, Heroines and Girls to start reading today.

Although the International Women’s Day is only one day in the whole year, women’s power should be praised and recognised every day and these books are going to show you famous Women who used their magic to change their lives, famous Heroines who changed history and how you can connect with these powers to enhance yours!

Encyclopedia of Goddesses and Heroines – Patricia Monaghan

This huge book by Patricia Monaghan is just like its title suggests: an Encyclopedia of Goddesses and Heroines. It is divided geographically, so if you are looking for some women from a specific location, you’ll find it!

There are more than 1000 Goddesses and Heroines here! If you’re not looking for a specific name, you can open it at random and read some information on the page opened. One Goddess/Heroine per day = almost 3 years of feminine power!

Although there is no English version of this book for the moment, I’d like to recommend it. In Mujeres, mitos y diosas (Women, Myths and Goddesses) the author retells the stories about famous and remarkable women throughout history.

The chapters are divided by: The Origins, From Tragedy to History, Love, Fairies, Queens, God’s Path (aspects from Virgin Mary), Today (strong women from our times).

The image above is from the Brazillian version.
