An examination of the goddess as creator and the facts and discoveries concerning the role of women in ancient times. In ancient myth throughout the world, from Asia to Ireland, to the islands of the Pacific, to ancient Crete, Babylonia and Phoenicia, the first creator of all was the Goddess. Her names were as varied as the people who worshiped her--Tanith, Metis, Gaea, Tiamet, Nammu, Anat, Astarte, Eurymone, Atira, Ishtar. This program goes back to a time when the Great Goddess was honored as the first principle and examines some of the facts and discoveries concerning the role of women in ancient times. Includes original music from Joanna Brouk, and was collectively produced by Padraigin McGillicuddy, Augusta Del Zotto, Darcell King, Nancy Briggs and Joanna Brouk.
