“All over the ancient world populations were now set against populations, as men were set against women and against other men. Wandering over the width and breadth of this disintegrating world, masses of refugees were everywhere fleeing their homelands, desperately searching for a haven, for a safe place to go.

But there was no such place left in their new world. For this was now a world where, having violently deprived the Goddess and the female half of humanity of all power, gods and men of war ruled. It was a world in which the Blade, and not the Chalice, would henceforth be supreme, a world in which peace and harmony would be found only in the myths and legends of a long lost past.”
Riane Eisler, The Chalice and the Blade: Our History, Our Future

“Women represent 70 percent of the 1.3 billion people in our world who live in absolute poverty. Consequently, as Joan Holmes, president of the Hunger Project, points out, any realistic efforts to change patterns of chronic hunger and poverty require changing traditions of discrimination against women.”
Riane Eisler, The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics

“When the status and power of women is greater so also is the nation’s general quality of life; when they are lower, so is the quality of life for all.”
Riane Eisler, The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics
