Bulgarian woman wielding a fantastic power

I found an interesting paper written in 2005.

The author writes about women’s status and the symbology of their power in Bulgarian folktales.

Folk tales are stories of the past.  True or false, these tales could be the modern link to the pre-historical society that considered women to be “mediator between the earth and the sky”
