For more than two decades Louise Sommer’s passion has been investigating the role of women in European history. In an effort to understand where our modern-day thought patterns originate regarding gender (men, women, masculinity and femininity), she has educated herself through all manner of reference materials – from research papers, books and articles, as well as her extensive travels.
Through her research Louise realised the role Christianity has played in forming our current Western gender roles. These studies led her to look even further back, examining pre-historical cultures in Europe (the goddess cultures from 12.000 BC through until Christianity), as well as immersing herself in studies of indigenous cultures.
Louise (b.1972) holds a Masters degree in Educational Psychology and a BA degree in Social Education and is specialised in complicated grief and crisis.
Considering herself a global gypsy, Louise loves travelling and has experienced many of the beautiful cultures on the planet. As well as having lived in Denmark, she has resided in the USA and Thailand, and now calls Australia home.
