CANCELLED Monette Chilson presents Original Resistance: Reclaiming Lilith, Reclaiming Ourselves

There is, perhaps, no more powerful archetype of female resistance than Lilith. As women across the globe rise up against the patriarchy, Lilith stands beside them, misogyny's original challenger. This anthology—a chorus of voices hitting chords of defiance, liberation, anger and joy—reclaims the goodness of women bold enough to hold tight to their essence. Through poetry, prose, incantation, prayer and imagery, women from all walks of life invite you to join them in the revolutionary act of claiming their place and reclaiming themselves.

Monette Chilson, author of My Name is Lilith and Sophia Rising: Awakening Your Sacred Wisdom Through Yoga, writes about God in the feminine and the feminine in God. She speaks to groups big and small, in both lecture and workshop settings. She’s written for publications including Yoga Journal, Integral Yoga Magazine and Elephant Journal and has contributed to numerous anthologies, most recently Whatever Works: Feminists of Faith Speak. She was awarded an Illumination Book Award gold medal, as well as the Hoffer Small Press and First Horizon Awards. She is currently editing an anthology titled Original Resistance: Reclaiming Lilith, Reclaiming Ourselves. Connect on Twitter and Instagram (@MonetteChilson) or explore her work at
