Van Max Dashu

Subject: Women's Power DVD release: Mar 21

It's finally here: Women's Power, the DVD!

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 created by Max Dashu looks at female spheres of power in politics, economics, religion, medicine, arts and letters --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!

You can order the DVD online or by mail (see order links at url above). It's $25. plus shipping for individuals, $75. for institutions.

Support the New Jersey Four: African-American lesbians who were attacked on the streets of NYC and imprisoned for defending themselves. Venice Brown, Terrain Dandridge, Patreese Johnson, and Renata Hill were assailed by a man "who held them down and choked them, ripped hair from their scalps, spat on them, and threatened to sexually assault them- -all because they are lesbians."
