Author of the classic book The Chalice and The Blade, Riane Eisler inspired a generation to envision an egalitarian society.
Today, in this dynamic self-paced online course, Riane weaves insights from cultural history, gender studies, economics, and neuroscience to show us how we can construct a more equitable, sustainable, and less violent world based on partnership rather than domination.
- The invisible interconnections between gender relations, parent/child relations, and economic relations
- How masculinity and femininity have been shaped by domination, and how gender holds different meanings in partnership cultures
- Tools to advocate effectively for the economic policies that support partnership families and communities
With these new concepts and tools, you can step forward confidently as a leader for partnership in your family, workplace, and the world.
