A Window into the World of the Great Goddess: An Egalitarian, Earth Amiable Time

Happy Earth Day. Ever wondered what humanity looked like when God was considered a female? Most of us know the original religions centered around female divinity with egalitarian societies, but we don’t know very much. This documentary “Goddess Remembered” provides a little bit more info. Relaxed and low key, the film features Merlin Stone, author of “When God Was a Woman,” and many other scholars and influential figures, who make a connection between the loss of female divinity with environmental crises.

Hidden Figures is a Phenomenal Film

I haven’t seen such a good film in a loooong time. With the approach of the inauguration of a demagogue, it was great to escape into a film so enthralling and full of amazing women. And it passes the Bechdel Test hands down.

Played by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe (yes, the Janelle Monáe, singer and songwriter) Hidden Figures is the true story of the women who did the calculations and research that made it possible to send people into space. Interwoven in the film are the obstacles these amazing women, Katherine Johnson Dorothy Vaughan  and Mary Jackson, had to overcome during the segregated 1960’s. This movie was immensely refreshing and we need more movies like it. Check it out!
