Thank you for your support for The MATRIARCHITECTS podcast and platform!

We believe in the power of stories to change the world. We know that who has the opportunity to tell their stories matters, that how these stories are told matters, and that the way in which these stories are shared matters.

THE MATRIARCHITECTS podcast and platform highlights the change-makers who are building a culture that respects, values, and celebrates women. Through audio, image, and written text, we spotlight people who are using their vision, gifts, and talents to create a cultural shift in attitudes toward women, and who are working to make our world a better place for people of all genders. These individuals and their stories offer an antidote to the hard times we live in, showing us that new ways of seeing and being are not only possible but are already here.

If you know someone whose work, words, life, and vision should be highlighted with THE MATRIARCHITECTS, please send a message.
