CRETE – ISLAND OF THE GODDESS




It seems to good to be true: Was there once a society dominated by women, and not by men? A society where peace prevailed and not war? Crete, the mediterranean island in the sun is said to be such a place. Was there really a matriarchy?

I set off to follow a trail and I discovered that in Crete many thousands of years ago there was indeed a society that was peaceful and where women played an important role in society and religion. But it was not matriarchy, but surprisingly a society where women and men were rather equal.
