Summary In this video, historian Max Dashú begins with a few questions: Where are the women? Why are there so few in 'recorded' history? How have women been written out of history? In answer, this video documents female leadership, creativity, wisdom, and courage, around the world and over thousands of years. These are the bold and creative women you always knew existed, kept out of the history books and off the screen. They are women famous and anonymous, ancient and modern, who were active in politics, economics, religion, medicine, and the arts and letters. Proof of their reality will change how you think about female humanity, and expand the boundaries of 'acceptable' history
