A Woman's Journey from Christian Tradition to the Sacred Feminine

Sue Monk Kidd has written several novels including The Secret Life of BeesThe Mermaid Chair, and The Invention of Wings.   Before the novels was the story of Sue Monk Kidd’s own journey, the Dance of the Dissident Daughter: A Woman’s Journey from Christian Tradition to the Sacred Feminine.   The 20th anniversary edition of the Dance of the Dissident Daughter has just been released. She discusses how that book shaped her novels, the quest for the Sacred Feminine, her relationship with organized religion, the effect Dance of the Dissident Daughter has had on her readers over the past 20 years, “holy misogyny,” and the grief and  corresponding responsive action regarding the election.
