Myths That Tell Us Who We Are
Lundy, Mary Ann Weese
Illinois Teacher of Home Economics, 18, 5, 276-9, May/Jun 75
Woman as temptress, woman on a pedestal, and woman as mother are myths which describe women's yearnings and fears; they bind women and men to limited roles. Another image for womanhood is "wholeness", suggesting health, interdependence, and freedom; it means accepting one's humanity and overcoming social blocks to growth. (Author/AJ)
