« back to classes page

Words are records of a peoples’ history and cultural development. For example, words like bitch, whore and hell were originally sacred words associated with the worship of the Goddess. However, they have become derogatory, even evil.  What happened? How did the definitions and connotations of words like these make a 180° turnaround from holy and mythic to disparaging? Come explore the history, etymology, mythology, and imagery of twelve representative words and discover how invasion, religious belief, and politics have reversed the meanings and use of such words to intentionally convey offense, insult, and demonization of goddesses and women.
