Since Baring Witness was conceived,
Donna Sheehan and Paul Reffell have had the dream of making a documentary.
The revelations arising from the original concept took them on a journey through evolutionary research, Darwinian theories of sexual selection
and the science of gender differences. Their book, Seduction Redefined, is the result, and it shows the way to a new paradigm of peace
and partnership in all human endeavor.
The working title for the documentary is The Eve Option.
A team of dedicated filmmakers and advisors are ready to make the dream come true.
The full story of the film and a proposal for investors and funders can be found online at
All we need is the start-up funding to begin the process.
Baring Witness is a project of Mow&Sow, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and will act as fiscal sponsor for The Eve Option.
Please make a tax-deductible donation to this new movement.
