Women Changing the World - International Women's day

2015-03-08 05:33

When humanity reaches out to those in suffering and need, the feminine values of caring and compassion are needed more and more. When it comes to saving the world, women are the change agents.

Women today have more power and privilege. In most instances they are so dominating and controlling that men are just small figures in the immense world.

Metaphorically we can say the Goddess Athena has been awakened and is in action in the world making our world a women's world.

Athena in Classical Greece is the Goddess of Philosophy and Strategy for taking over the world. Though Athena is a goddess of war strategy, she disliked fighting without purpose and preferred to use wisdom to settle predicaments. She emphasizes everyone to use intuitive wisdom rather than anger or violence. She  is usually portrayed as one of the most benevolent goddesses . . .strong, fair, and merciful.

The spark of women's power has been ignited and it is coloring and affecting the way we live our lives and the direction and destiny of the the world. So women in most ways have power. The balance has finally tipped in women's favour. Millions of women, the world over, are taking economic, social and political power, building new institutions, infusing them with new, more humanistic values and saving the world. The Random House Webster's College Dictionary's first definition of power is the ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something.

In an imperfect world full of social and psychological ills where violence, sexual abuse and harassment reigns powerful women are rising redirecting the world and planting positive seeds of a coming positive society.

As new Africa emerges, at the roots of society, women are reasserting their power to change the world. They are taking control of their destiny and creating economic independence through sheer entrepreneurship.

Women hold the key in stabilizing the violence and mayhem of our societies. They hold the key to breaking poverty that cripples the spirit of millions of people. They hold the key to a more positive society.
