Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a truly potent and powerful book, and one of our time, that continually inspires us here at Four Girls. Estes' voice and message is fresh and crisp.
"Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women.

If you are looking for encouragement, for a mantra, for hope in the sometimes overwhelming endeavor of understanding and relating the innate female experience, this book stands out and was the catalyst for our Wild Woman, Hear Me Roar tee.
