Historically, men have painted women as saints in the form of fertile goddesses, breasts exposed to feed their many babies grabbing hold of their long, matronly skirts. Today’s idea of a heroine includes some of the same attributes. But some have shifted their gaze to women protecting and securing the future of their bodies. What if a woman was considered “saintly” by honoring her own body and choices. What if that meant having or not having a baby when she pleased. What if every woman was just as saintly and divine as the next?
