Eisler challenges us all to envision a “gender-holistic” society. She is the author of the international best-seller The Chalice and the Blade: Our History, Our Future, which introduced dominator and partnership models of social organization. Her guidebook, The Partnership Way: New Tools for Living and Learning, written with social psychologist and futurist David Loye, was the basis for a nationwide network of Centers for Partnership Education.
