I'm having too much fun with this "Manly Man"/"Womanly Woman" thing to give it up. (see Sunday's post)
Besides, before we establish Goddess religion worldwide, we need to define the "good" Goddess person. I say it's someone who, like a healthy mother, and like the Great Mother, is at the same time nurturing and assertive (no aggression allowed).
So the Womanly Woman would be a fine, aromatic blend of nurturance and assertiveness. Ditto the Manly Man.
And, Voila!! My TOP 10 WOMANLY WOMEN:
1. Susan Sarandon
2. Joanne Woodward
3. Angela Lansbury
5. Tyne Daly
6. Penny Marshall
7. Sandra Bullock
8. Drew Barrymore
9. Brooke Shields
10. Helen Hunt
Who's your #1 Womanly Woman?
Assertiveness: Expressing your thoughts & feelings in direct, honest ways and without violating another's integrity.
Aggression: Expressing your thoughts & feelings in ways that humiliate or overpower another.
Non-Assertiveness: Failure to express yourself -- or expressing your thoughts so apologetically that others can easily disregard them.
Nurturance: To help nourish, sustain, grow, develop.
