Raising the Skirt

A woman who owns her Pu$$y, owns her life.
It just cuts like that.
Is that a scary thought? A provocative thought?
Does it live like truth as you read the words on this screen? Or not?

Owning your Pu$$y is a way of saying yes to every single drop of you.

Don’t worry.
You can still be shy and own your Pu$$y.
Or, you can be outrageous and own your Pu$$y.
We each have our own path.

Owning your Pu$$y is way easier than it sounds.
It has more to do with opening your mind than opening your legs.
Not that I would discourage the latter… 😉

I had the honor and privilege of interviewing Dr. Catherine Blackledge for this week’s blog.

She is author of the best-selling book Raising the Skirt: The Unsung Power of the Vagina (originally published in the UK as The Story of V), and a personal heroine of mine.

In Catherine’s words, “Raising the skirt to display your vagina is a universal gesture of female power and pride used individually and collectively for millennia by women to protect their home, family, sisters, community, or way of life, and it’s making a comeback. That’s why I didn’t hesitate when choosing a new title for the 2020 edition of my best-selling book celebrating the beauty and power of the vagina; it had to be Raising the Skirt.

Imagine a world where girls and women are told stories fostering a sense of pride and potency in what it means to have a vagina.

Stories valuing female genitalia; stories revealing the vagina to be the ultimate symbol of female power. These stories exist. Everyone with a vagina should know them.

Accounts of how mighty the vagina is – raising the skirt stories – are astonishingly common and long-standing: look at the history, folklore, or mythology of any country or culture and you’ll soon find them; they represent a global treasure trove of women’s history. Vaginas, the raising the skirt stories all say, are so powerful that if a woman lifts her skirt to reveal her genitalia she can make a vast array of extraordinary actions happen.

There are so many stories in Catherine’s book that will inspire, inform, and delight you – as she explores and pays tribute to the historic power of women through millenia.

Take a peak at my interview with her, and find out how Catherine’s own life changed and expanded as she fulfilled nearly impossible dreams, and began the incredible journey of owning her Pu$$y, and owning her life.
