    Why Women Should Run the World

    If we wish to save the world before we destroy ourselves, we need to flood our institutions with female leaders.

    Suffering and Change: Healing Comes Only When You Suffer the Right Thing

    Much psychological and practical energy may be expended in trying to fix the wrong kind of suffering. Many defensively motivated behaviors such as addictions, obsessions and perfectionism create suffering in their own right. Often they are so very difficult to fight because they are not really the problem themselves but actually the defensive solution to a problem that is emotionally harder to deal with. The end of suffering comes only when we are willing to suffer the right thing instead.

I’m thrilled to be part of this line-up of women, especially given the passionate alignment I feel towards empowering women to change the world, one woman at a time. International Woman’s Day is an important day to celebrate the changes that women are making towards greater freedom, equality and choice. Thank you to the sisterhood for hearing the call.

Wow, I definitely agree that women would be better suited to run the world sometimes, citing history – conflict, war, repression, etc. I think I will read all these articles and look into the authors above – thank you so much for this, a treat indeed. Good reading for the weekend.

Lance you make a good point. Women are certainly more passionate than men – in alot of topics and issues in life. I’m not sure if women get more credit than they do when it comes to their intelligence level – and ability to make the world a better place.



Great celebration by publishing this post. Without Man, there is no Woman. Just analyse these two words.
1) “Woman” contains “Man”
2) “She” has “He”
Alternatively, we can say”There is a woman backing each man.”
In short, both are equal for life.

Men and Women are basically interwoven.

Without a man there will be no women

Also without women men will not be born,as God is too busy to start the circle of creation all over again.

Women should be given their rightful place as the world is in their delicate and beautiful hands
