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 some of the extended interviews online.  And you can order you own copy now!

An historic event!

The Spiritual Unity of Tribes - Gathering of Eagles was held in the Black Hills of South Dakota June 21-25, 2016. The event was attendied by almost 300 people and was the first Spiritual Unity of Tribes Gathering  planned by the grandmothers. Many of the grandmothers in our film were  there. Particpants learned more about the importance of the role of grandmothers in our world. Visit www.SUT-GatheringofEagles.orgfor more information.

"There won't be peace on earth until the voices of the grandmothers are heard."   

 July Screening in Ventura, California


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!
