My review of Aphrodite’s Tortoise is up! (Now with the actual link! Way to go, Jo!)

I meant to post this when the review went live, but time is a thing that I keep not having. That and memory. I need to maybe start a list of the things that need attending. (Three jobs, y’all. Three.)

Aphrodite’s Tortoise is about the veiling practices and customs of women in ancient Greece. It was a thought-provoking, interesting book that gave me absolutely no historical precedence for my veiling practice, much as I’d hoped it would. The reading of this book helped me realize that 1) I really need to stop deciding I need historical precedence for my veiling practice (Poseidon said do it. I’m doing it.) and 2) I’m not sure how comfortable I am with “modesty”, though I’m not sure what (less used by those in a power-over position as a tool to control) term I’d use instead.

  1. Ah, I’m sorry it wasn’t what you had hoped for. I’ve had this on my to-read/to-buy list for some time but it looks like it won’t meet my needs either. Thanks for reviewing this.
