The liberation movement that began in the 1960s has brought women independence, equal civil rights and better jobs & pay but not freedom and confidence. Women are still stuck.
“The first women’s liberation movement went sour because it encouraged women to be like men”, says Patrick Wanis, Therapist, Human Behavior Expert, Better-life Coach and author of “What a Woman Wants.” Wanis says, “The new liberation for women is rejuvenation through self-expression and personal identity which is not just about a job or career, it’s also about expressing your sensuality and sexuality freely, confidently and joyfully.” Wanis is endorsing “Sexual Joy Dance Workshops” that are coming to Florida for the first time and are designed to increase body awareness and self-confidence because the female body is still considered taboo or is simply objectified to repress women. The workshops teach women how to own their sexuality and sensuality and how to deepen the connection women have with themselves and others. “In becoming more like men, many women have lost touch or become disconnected from their family, feelings and sensuality”, says Wanis.
“Women cannot be empowered or realize their full potential until they can freely express every aspect of themselves. One key aspect of a woman is her sensuality and sexuality which has been squelched by religion and the male need for domination.”
