Hi there! Thank you for reading and reaching out :) That's an excellent question.
Here are a few books that have helped me process gender-based trauma:
- "Addiction to Perfection" by Marion Woodman
- "Circle of Stones" by Judith Duerk
- "Cassandra Speaks" by Elizabeth Lesser
- "Women Who Run with the Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola
I would add that exploring polyamory has helped me a lot. Accepting monogamy as the only relationship choice made me feel trapped for a long time.
