Danu, Bridget, and the Morrigan - Goddesses and Women in Druidism

Presented by Isaac Bonewits.

Common misconceptions of ancient and modern Druidism focus on its supposed “patriarchal” character. Neopagan Druids, however, know that goddesses and women were far more prominent in Paleopagan Druidism than is usually known, and incorporate that knowledge with many modern feminist principles in their organizational structures and ritual practices. Isaac will discuss the role of women in the Indo-European cultures, especially in their clergy castes; local Earth, Sun, Bardic, and Warrior Goddesses in the Celtic world; the Gaia-centric evolution of Neopagan Druidism, and the leadership of women in major Neopagan Druid groups.
