Thank you to the organizers of the Joshua Tree International Film Festival for selecting us as the recipient of the 2016 Peace Award.

Inspired by an indigenous teaching that states, "There won't be peace on earth until the voices of the grandmothers are heard," this documentary set out to find out why. In interviews with grandmothers and elders from Siberia to Patagonia, "The Wisdom of the Grandmothers" is a powerful testimony to the importance of the voices of elder women in today's world. Love, community, creativity, family, faith and spirituality, respect and caring for our Mother Earth are just of a few of the important topics shared. Come to our screenings, check out when it will be aired on a PBS station in your area, (or please call you local station to ask them to air it) and watch the extended interviews online. 


Watch the :30 PBS Promo below.

TheWomen's Voices Project initially grew out of a dream.  We hoped to help advance the status of women through interviews with grandmothers throughout the world. Since the book "Women's Voices: The Wisdom of the Grandmothers" was published in 2010, the project has grown in scope and content to include the documentary film  "The Wisdom of the Grandmothers " and our blog to share more. Please join our blog community and share a story about your grandmother's wisdom!
