Throughout human history, men have been the storytellers and the scribes. How might our cultures have changed if we also had versions of her story to study and learn from? Who might we be today if matriarchy guided our dreams, ambitions, and basic needs?
To ponder these questions and understand how women can lean into their power, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors who research stories of power, equality, and respect.
Elizabeth Lesser shares stories of women in history who have had their voices quelled in her book, Cassandra Speaks: When Women are the Storytellers, the Human Story Changes.
Donna Freitas discusses the years of research she assembled which led to her book, Consent: A Memoir of Unwanted Attention.

She has given two popular TED talks and is one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100, a collection of a hundred leaders who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity.
