Burning Woman is a breath-taking and controversial woman’s journey through history — personal and cultural — on a quest to find and free her own power.
2017 Nautilus Award Winner in the program's 'Women' category of books for and about Women's journey.
Burning Woman explores:
- Burning from within: a woman’s power—how to build it, engage it and not be destroyed by it.
- Burning from without: the role of shame, and honour in the time-worn ways the dominant culture uses fire to control the Feminine.
- The darkness: overcoming our fear of the dark, and discovering its importance in cultivating power.
This incendiary text was written for women who burn with passion, have been burned with shame, and who at another time, in another place, would have been burned at the stake.

Meet the artist: Robin Quinlivan
Womancraft Publishing is proud to celebrate not just the words, but the images of talented women too.
ROBIN QUINLIVAN, creator of ‘Waiting to Fly’, the artwork for Burning Woman, lives in a little mountain town in West Virginia where she runs an art gallery with three friends.
“I like to paint with all manner of colored substances: oil, acrylic, watercolor… However most of the prints here are from oil pastel etchings, which is my latest favorite way to make art. I layer the oil pastels and carve down through them to create an image. It’s a fun and sometimes unpredictable process, during which hands and arms and clothing usually get a bit colorful … and I like that about it too.”
