Witches' Goddess: The Feminine Principle of Divinity. with line illustrations by Stewart Farrar.

Custer, WA: Phoenix Publishing, 1987. First Edition. Original Wraps. Janet Farrar (b. 1950) was initiated into Alexandrian witchcraft by the tradition's founders, Alex and Maxine Sanders in the early 1970s. She met Stewart Farrar (1916 – 2000) in the group, and the two went on to marry and co-author a number of books on witchcraft and modern neo-paganism. As Janet and Stewart Farrar state in their book The Witches’ Goddess, “after centuries of banishment, the Goddess has returned.” The goddess became a symbol for strong and independent women and Wicca became a religion that was for women, by women.. A study of the Goddess movement is claimed to offer self-empowerment through an articulation of the female experience as divine, and to protest what are perceived to be patriarchal values that promote gender inequalities."--Elizabeth Shuler in "A Balancing Act: A Discussion of Gender Roles Within Wiccan Ritual."
