Gynocentrism, a centuries old term, refers to the principle of female centeredness or female dominance in various social or interpersonal contexts. The term has recently enjoyed a resurgence, serving again as a descriptor of the expanding yet centuries old obsession with the rights, status, and power of women. This book traces the history of that tradition to its roots in medieval society, while being careful to note the difference between benign gynocentric acts and the more problematic examples of gynocentric culture. The essays collected in this volume were originally penned for the website Gynocentrism and its Cultural Origins, and have since been revised for this eBook edition. The essays are grouped into nine parts exploring various aspects of gynocentrism, and providing examples of the phenomenon from historical literature. The final part, Post Gynocentric Relationships explores the possibility of relationships built on the notion of friendship as an alternative to neurotic shibboleths of romantic love.The essays collected in this volume were originally penned for the website Gynocentrism and its Cultural Origins, and have since been revised for this eBook edition.
