Who are we? We began in 2001, having persistent conversations about starting our own organization. From the start we wanted to create a circle within which women with a passion for sacred myths and images meet—regardless of their “day jobs” or geographic locations.

At present, the kinds of women who have joined ASWM include those who:
- conduct research
- create artworks and music
- teach goddess studies
- make documentaries
- mentor students
- write (plays, poetry, fiction, autobiography)
- perform and create performances
- translate primary sources
- lead rituals and religious services
- lead workshops
- lead tours to sacred sites
- conduct/interpret archaeological studies
- develop education resources
- interpret contemporary literature and artwork
And this is only the beginning. In ASWM, goddess scholars and teachers interact with artists, writers, ritualists—women on all creative paths—to bring myths and images to life for modern women. We believe that we all have much to say to one another, and that sharing ideas and resources strengthens the work we do.
