Throughout history, it has been always believed that women are complex beings who are very difficult to understand and comprehend. This book, The Book of Woman, is a guide by Osho which helps women understand themselves, their inner beings and to not submit to repression. Women play multiple roles in one lifetime ranging from being a sister or friend to a wife and then grandmother and if lucky a great grandmother. During this process, there is much repression and oppression into which women give in and thus there is a death of their dreams and desires. In his book, Osho, stresses on the fact that women, be it anyone, should be proud of her qualities and celebrate her feminine side. This forms a synthesis between the mind and the heart of a woman.
