ABOUT THE BOOK
In her highly anticipated new book CASSANDRA SPEAKS: When Women Are the Storytellers, The Human Story Changes, Elizabeth Lesser, bestselling author of BROKEN OPEN and MARROW, delivers a feminist classic ... a book that reveals how humanity has outgrown its origin tales, hero myths, and other stories, and empowers women to trust their instincts, find their voice, and tell new guiding stories for all people.

Whether we know it or not, whether we have read them or not, whether we believe them or don’t, our daily lives take direction from stories that are hundreds, even thousands of years old—ancient myths, religious texts, literature and theater, fairy tales and hero’s journeys. But living in the age of “Fake News,” we now recognize that knowing the source and the purpose of these stories is critical—who told them, and why? And how have they maintained their authority all these years later? 

Using her great gifts of humor and insight, research and personal narrative, Lesser exposes how what we believe to be “just the way it is” is actually just a collection of stories—"stories that tell false and destructive narratives about women and men, femininity and masculinity, and the nature and purpose of life.” 

CASSANDRA SPEAKS is a beautifully balanced synthesis of personal storytelling and cultural observation. Lesser’s long involvement in both feminism and spiritual development gives her the authority to offer this much-needed antidote to the either/or ideologies on both sides of the gender debate. Women, men and all people will find themselves in the pages of this book, and will come away strengthened, opened, and ready to work together to create a better world for all.
