What's a beldam?
A beldam is a wise woman, a witch, a crone.
She is a grand•mother, a beautiful and sage goddess.
Look up the word in the dictionary, though, and you'll find some variation of "old, ugly hag." Why might this be?
Our socialization under patriarchy has taught us that the wisdom of the female body and the traditional teachings of wise women are invalid, unscientific, and even dangerous.
In reclaiming our wise woman traditions and and celebrating our bodily sovereignty, we step into beldam-hood and reject the patriarchal narrative.
