Throughout history, most of humankind’s origin stories, hero’s tales, novels and films have been told by men. Embedded in those stories are morals about men and women, power and war, sex and love, and what it takes to be courageous, gallant and strong. These stories stick to us, inform our values and validate or invalidate whole swaths of people. But what if women had been the storytellers too? What kind of world would women have longed for and led us toward? These are the questions that Elizabeth Lesser explores as she empowers women to trust their instincts, speak their truths and reclaim their authentic voices from under the weight of thousands of years’ worth of fake news from history. She’s given two popular TED talks and is one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100.
