Are there any books about realizing/expressing your femininity?

Just to be clear, I don t mean feminist books or books about motherhood or anything religious. I simply want to connect more with my femininity and I m finding myself out of ideas how to embody something I ve always suppressed for various reasons.

Update:

And I guess I have to add that I'm biologically female and not interested in modern ideas about gender. I'm specifically asking about the age old idea of femininity.

    You might like to read 'The Total Woman' by Marabel Morgan. Plenty of traditional don't-talk-back-to-him advice.

    I think the women's magazines are your best bet, but I'd ignore Cosmopolitan (very trashy) and stick to the better, more upscale publications like Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, and Vogue.

    yes, those are called women's magazines; like cosmopolitan, marie claire, ms., redbook, and others. the next step to finding-out that you are a woman, is to learn to be the "queen bee" and to own all of the world's femininity for your own self.

    then, you can mock the others for attempting to look like you do.

    If you mean a concern for beauty, personal appearance, flirtatiousness, social smoothness, fashion, and the softer side of life, there are 'polishing schools' for girls and young ladies. These schools focus on carriage, deportment, social graces, etiquette, dance, and perhaps things like literature and music. You can certainly learn about things like literature, dance and music on your own. Deportment, grace and etiquette might require coaching.

      They're called "finishing" schools, and they really no longer exist to any great extent. Those that still do are specializing in trying to train women executives in etiquette and entertaining skills, that sort of thing.

    This one is pretty good. It's written from a Christian perspective.

    You're probably on track for integrating your feminine aspects. Don't resist this growth and you'll be great.

      I'm over 25 and struggling with this. If it was just happening naturally, I wouldn't be seeking help, believe me... Thanks for the words of encouragement though
