There are MANY faiths and spiritual paths that are dedicated to the feminine divine.
Wicca is perhaps the most welll known. Contrary to popular assumptions it is not male hating. Most Wiccan sects teach balancebetween the male divine
and female divine. Only a few Wiccan sects, like the dianic tradition, are soley devoted to the female.
There are many pagan faiths, besides Wicca, which worship the various feminine divine. Asatru, Vanatru, Vedic Hinduism, Hinduism, Shinto, African
animism, Voodoo, Native American paths, and many more. Type any of the abo ve into your search engine, and you will find loads of info on each.
The semetic religons, Judism, Christianity, and Islam all stem from the same monotheistic source and are the only religons to totally wipe out the
femminine side of the divine. Because these religons are the most familiar to westerners, its easy to see why we often do not think anyone worships
the sacred femminine. I myself am pagan/Wiccan. I am not a femmenist. I believe in the balance of both.
