Discredited or historically ignored role models

"Up to twenty thousand years of patriarchal rule have left women with erased self-images, little herstory, and only discredited or historically ignored role models. By adopting the Goddess, women also adopt the concept of Goddess-within self-image. Each woman who sees herself as deity finds and becomes her own role model, raising her personal self-worth immeasurably. If Goddess created the earth, moon, and universe, and if she *is* the earth, moon and universe, and if women are Goddess, too -- there is little an individual woman cannot accomplish." ~Diane Stein
