"In prehistorical times, Eisler argues, women and men lived together in egalitarian communities devoted to nurturance; with the imposition of male domination, female values gave way to creeds of hierarchy, aggression, power, obedience. Eisler, a futurist, posits a new society based on the recovery of more humane values."--Library journal (6/1/85).

This is an enlightening book based on well researched human history that reveals how we became a male dominated society. Dr. Eisler has had a dynamic life experience that made her probe for the root causes of societal discourses. She offers a solution through striving for more equatable gender partnerships.
She is the founder of the Center for Partnership Studies (CPS-https://centerforpartnership.org/) that "is a catalyst for cultural, economic, and personal transformation- from domination to partnership, from control to care, from power-over to empowerment. CPS's programs provide new knowledge, insights, interventions, and practical tools for this urgently needed shift" (CPS website, 2018).

A highly recommended read for all genders; especially now with the many challenges humanity faces!
