In answer to a friend's question "why separate church and state," we have produced the following short clip that we hope you will find of interest. It is posted on our hiddenwomenbooks website as an election special.

The BIG Problem with Being a Church State
Finding the common denominator, representation of all the people - lofty concepts, but to do it? How do you identify divisive elements in governance, the infectious mind viruses designed to divide and conquer? 

The past lights the path forward.

Announcing a new release
Fourth in the Hidden Women Series


Available on Amazon
Recent finds shine a new light on Charlemagne. The head of the Holy Roman Empire was not holy, never Roman and no emperor. Instead, he and his family all founded secular abbeys - in the days before abbeys excluded women, of course.

Although little physical evidence survives from that era, these few remaining vestiges speak volumes. The advances made in Iron Age archaeology open new views of a beautiful medieval world long dismissed as barbaric. A buried cosmopolitan past is coming to life in all its flourish, bustle and elegance.

While that might be nice to know, it’s also crucial to confront what really happened in Europe’s past in order to deal with the world now. The measure is: How did they treat their women? How females fare shows who is working toward what end.

Liberty For All

By Jacqueline Widmar Stewart, with Bernadette Theissen

In English and French, with English subtitles



Announcing the new release of the short film Liberty for All.  Look behind the scenes at the forces driving the quest for liberty in France and America; hear the voices from both sides of the Atlantic that led up to the two revolutions.  With the help of archaeology, uncover some of France's Gallic roots that reveal a tradition of liberty that included both men and women.  As a culmination, listen to the words of France's 20thcentury warrior who raised a rallying cry for freedom that still resounds to the present day.  


Lest freedom slip away while the world deals with pestilence, earnings and survival, please spend a brief moment with us to consider the high cost of losing it.
