In the beginning, God was a woman. For eons Goddess was revered in her many forms by every culture around the world. Women, the givers of life, were held high esteem. But with the appearance of male-dominating cultures and their single male god, Goddess religions were destroyed and women were diminished to subservience. God has prevailed since. But a few decades ago, things began to change - Goddess began to make her return.

Rise of Venus is about the up-rise of the Women’s Spirituality Movement and its importance in America today.

The Women’s Spirituality Movement emerged during the Women’s Liberation Movement in the United States in the 1970s. The revival of ancient goddess doctrine provided an empowering, female-based avenue to those disenchanted with traditional male-focused religions. 40 years later, we examine the status of women’s spirituality in the United States and its presence in our consciousness and culture. Rise of Venus: The Power of the Women’s Spirituality Movement is a documentary, short-subject mini-series that explores this spiritual revolution and its impact on American women and society.  

Rise of Venus speaks to both goddess practitioners and goddess-curious. Its mission is to impart information about Women’s Spirituality, inspire the audience to learn, and affirm the value of the Divine Feminine in today’s world.
