Ruth Says:

This recording was first created in 1987 when the Goddess Movement was in its second decade. Its message continues to live and inspire new generations of women discovering Goddess and woman-centered spirituality in many forms. I decided to re-release Invocation To Free Women on CD, with the original cover art by Asungi, in honor of the 35th anniversary of the Dianic tradition and to celebrate the evolution of a movement that continues to heal our souls.
