The second day of the conference, 12 September 2021, is a political day dedicated to celebrating the 80th birthday of Heide Goettner-Abendroth.

Throughout her life, she has researched the egalitarian, peaceable patterns of matriarchal societies worldwide and founded modern Matriarchal Studies through her scholarly work. Based on this, she has formulated a profound critique of the present situation and made political proposals that offer practical solutions to today's pressing problems.

Her magnum opus has been translated into several languages. She has led three world congresses on Matriarchal Studies and Matriarchal Politics and lectures in Europe and on other continents.

Some of her colleagues and friends from several countries have been invited to celebrate this day with her. They will speak about their own research as well as the scholarly and political work carried out by Heide Goettner-Abendroth, revealing the inspiration and insights it has given them. The international guest speakers will also comment on the political consequences of Heide's work.

All speeches will be given in English and will be translated into German.
