At last, the long-awaited DVD premiere of Women’s Power,
the first video created by Max Dashú.
A panoramic view of female leadership, creativity, wisdom, and courage, around the world and over thousands of years.
For the first time on DVD, this acclaimed show looks at female spheres of power in politics, economics, religion, medicine, arts and letters, featuring a rich tapestry of women famous and anonymous, ancient and modern.
These are the bold and creative women you always knew existed, who were kept out of the history books and off the TV screens. Seeing their reality will change how you think about female humanity. If you've ever wondered where the women were—see this movie!
