When Women Are the Storytellers

Add to favorites

By Elizabeth Lesser and Maria Shriver


What story would Eve have told about picking the apple? Why is Pandora blamed for opening the box? And what about the fate of Cassandra, who was blessed with knowing the future but cursed so that no one believed her? What if women had also told our guiding origin tales, spiritual parables, and hero myths?

Omega cofounder Elizabeth Lesser explores these questions and more in conversation with journalist and former first lady of California Maria Shriver, for the launch of her newest book, Cassandra Speaks.
