Within every woman who has ever lived, hidden in plain sight in the last place we would think to look for it, lies a vast and beautiful untapped resource – a design whose breath-taking elegance and sophistication has not yet occurred to us. In naming women’s four-m sequence of menarche, menstrual cycle years, menopause and mature life as a single entity going far beyond its fertility function, the femenome model makes visible, speakable, usable and meaningful the potent feminine hormonal energies that have too long been mysterious and even disturbing to us.
The World Within Women is a long-awaited voice speaking new language into old silence, catalysing knowledge into contrived ignorance, and profound healing into an ancient wound in the female psyche. Its simple yet revolutionary insights offer a radically empowering new view of the menstrual cycle, and the perfect and purposeful holographic matrix of which it is a part. Here is a clarion call to a new kind of feminism – one that bestows its own equality, not by complying with the accustomed demand to live as if our menstrual cycles do not affect us, but by knowing as we have never known before how powerfully and positively they do.
