Woman Who Runs With Wolves is about a woman finding and making peace with her wild and natural side. It is part fairytale part myth. It is about a woman’s struggle in life to develop her true nature in spite of societal and family expectations. Finding one’s internal animal instinct makes a woman strong and empowered. A woman can be sensitive, yet fierce; vulnerable yet strong, being multifaceted means one quality does not diminish the other. Strong women are called bitches, sensitive women are thought to be weak, and beautiful women are objectified. As a society we do not readily recognize our gender bias toward women, yet even women are biased toward women. This presidential campaign has illuminated that as a nation we have far to come in terms of our base attitudes toward our daughters, sisters and mothers.
