About Feminist Heathen
This blog is a love letter to Heathenry in many ways. It is my desire to write about Heathen belief from the perspective of a reconstructionist who also identifies as a progressive feminist. I make no claims to be an expert or the Asapope. I invite respectful and thoughtful disagreement. I just want to make Heathenry better by challenging myself and others through my writing.
