Kali on the Outskirts of Town

She was banished to the outskirts of town by the patriarchy, but the outskirts are nicer than the center of town these days (not actually sure whether the latter is true).

She is unassuming on the surface and secretly wild, and she is completely self-sufficient.

I just reread Marilyn French’s The Woman’s Room and it has me thinking about Kali.
