Max Dashu

Max Dashu has been active in the women’s liberation movement for 45 years. She founded the Suppressed Histories Archives in 1970 to research women’s history and heritages in global perspective. Her legendary slideshows bring to light female realities hidden from view, from ancient iconography to women leaders, medicine women and rebels, bridging the gap between academia and grassroots education. From her collection of over 40,000 images, Dashu has created hundreds of slideshows, and presented them at universities, conferences, and grassroots venues. She has authored numerous articles and produced two videos on dvd: Woman Shaman: the Ancients (2013) and Women’s Power in Global Perspective (2008). Her book Witches and Pagans will be released this fall.
