The role of women in our society has undergone a magnificent transformation,
Our nation was deeply influenced by the Victorian Era,
turning the “Woman’s Place” from coordinator of the household,
land owner, teacher, physician, wife and mother
to a nearly subhuman participant in home and community.
Over the 20th century Women have struggled from the depths of this troubling position
to regain and surpass all previous achievements
to include the right to vote,
hold up Her own in business,
politics and religious authority.
In the comfort of the second decade of the 21rst century,
we look back over the past few hundred years and marvel at Her progress;
yet still some ways to go to stand level with her counterpart.
We can appreciate Her progress not only to elevate Her sex,
but to humanize Men as well.
Confined to the role forced upon each other,
Men have also been able to step up in ways that American Society have repressed:
nurturing, responsive, accommodating and thoughtful.
Accused in the past of being much to cold and indifferent,
the young men of our “New Age” have benefited from the strides Women have achieved
by redefining their own roles.
By their very struggles,
Women have not only healed but transformed our society as a whole.
In celebration of these accomplishments I have created The Ladies of the Star Amulet.
The pentacle is composed of five tongues of flame,
morphing into women, developing the circle of life for which the pentacle is able to be formed:
the efforts of Women developing strength,
balance and empowerment through their transformative efforts.
This amulet is one and a half inches
with a back bail to allow the piece to be hung on a cord or chain.
Ladies of the Star Amulet is for those who celebrate the role of women in our community and as a sign of support of their continued strength, endurance and vision for a better future for all.
