“We are quite literally partners in our own evolution” —Riane Eisler

Riane Eisler has given me a new perspective on how awareness about the partnership paradigm can create change towards a more caring, sustainable world. For me, her work provides a sense of liberation and hope.

The partnership framework is a powerful lens for analyzing social, cultural, economic and political issues.
Julie de Azevedo Hanks, PhD Licensed Clinical Social Worker, performing songwriter, author, blogger, consultant, and private practice therapy clinic owner, Salt Lake City, USA
The dominator-partnership continuum has transformed my view of the world, myself, my family. In my PhD dissertation, I applied Riane Eisler’s Cultural Transformation Theory to a practice model of family life called Partnership Model of Family Organization (PMFO) as a path to support the creative productivity in mothers, and to help all families move toward partnership relations. As a media contributor and blogger, I am weaving the dominator-partnership lens into my content, as well as into my next book.
