Satanic Feminism - Per Faxneld
The belief that women were in league with the Devil is prominent throughout Christian history. In the 19th century Lucifer was recast as a feminist liberator of womankind and once-fallen Eve was proclaimed a heroine. In Satanic Feminism, Per Faxneld explores the intersections between feminism, art, esotericism and politics in this period, demonstrating how the current of Satanic feminism manifested in a variety of media - from literature to the arts, and was expressed by a cast of colourful characters ranging from suffragatte Elizabeth Cady Stanton to lesbian poetess Renée Vivien.
