Biography:

Cultural historian and systems theorist Riane Eisler is internationally recognised for her body of published work. In the 1970s Eisler taught at UCLA, where she spear-headed the Women's Movement.

She has completed pioneering work in human rights, the role of women and the feminisation of poverty. Eisler founded a variety of organisations including the LA Women's Centre Legal Program and General Evolution Research Group. She is Co-Director of the Centre for Partnership Studies.

Having earlier expanded the vision of international organisations to include the rights of women and children, Eisler now consults for corporations and governmental agencies. She has published a number of best-selling and critically acclaimed books and journal articles, including The Chalice and the Blade, Sacred Pleasure, Dissolution, and Women, Men, and the Global Quality of Life.

Eisler has been honoured by the Club of Budapest, has received the Humanist Pioneer Award and has been recognised in the book Macrohistory and Macrohistorians: Perspectives on Individual, Social and Civilizational Change as amongst the world's twenty great thinkers - the only woman to receive this honour.
