Welcome to Gynapedia

Co-founders: Dr. Kaalii Cargill and Dr. Helen Hye-Sook Hwang

Welcome to Gynapedia, the online gynocentric encyclopedia. Here you will find articles and information on people and communities, including the terrestrial eco-community, as well as information on organisations, ideas and philosophies that reflect Goddess feminism, activism and spirituality. Gynapedia is based on Mago Gift Work, an extension of the Maternal/Gynocentric Gift Economy, supporting a shift from the worldview based on the exchange economy to one that supports social change and ever-deepening commitment to cooperation with each other and with Nature. Gynapedia is a response to the ever-accelerating assaults of the patriarchal worldview. It offers an alternative grounded in Goddess feminism, activism and spirituality.

Gynapedia is propelled by the vision of Helen Hye-Sook Hwang, advocate of Magoism, immensely influenced by Mary Daly. Gynapedia/Mago Wickedary of Goddess Feminist Activism and Spirituality is the third part of the collective writing project that the Mago Work has undertaken after She Rises series and Celebrating the Goddess series.

The term, Wickedary, is borrowed from Mary Daly’s Websters’ First New Intergalactic Wickedary of the English Language in cahoots with Jane Caputi.
