Blogging: A first for me but here it goes…

As far as I know the past has been unequivocally unbalanced, inequitable, biased, discriminatory, prejudicial, chauvinistic, sexist, demeaning, and racist towards women in almost every culture as far back as history goes, except for the very select few that recognize their goddesses.

The world we live in, by enlarge, has been created and run by men, most of whom have caused much more incarceration than liberation, and only in a blink of an eye of time have we started to consider equality for all.

Nearly every woman I’ve met is proof as to why our past is something to be ashamed of, yet for reasons beyond me, conventions and perceptions are changing only at a snails-pace.

We’re bringing up children to do the same thing that we’re doing, and they bring up their children to do the same as if we’re still living in the past.

I embrace change, but the world fears it as if it had the potential to cause more harm than good; anguish over contentment; and diminishment over maturation; but maybe that’s because this is the way it’s always been?

I also believe that once something is understood, it is much easier to overcome. Not to say that women aren’t understood but inequality.

More and more woman are being hired as CEOs at major firms and other leading roles in society. Societies originally dominated and established by elite men are starting to recognize a more holistic feminist aspect of community and well-being. Communities are shaping to serve diverse groups and not just any one majority.

I see a bright and beautiful future, and as more women take on leading roles, and we finally become a balanced civilization, we will all grow and prosper together in a way history has never seen before on an exponential and unprecedented scale.

And it all starts with a little understanding and compassion for one another

    Well written blog my friend. We had more equality in ancient civilizations than we do in some societies of today. I seem to see and sense it is and probably always will be a power imbalance. There are many hours of discussion to be had on the rights of individuals

  2. I agree that we are moving towards equality slowly and some countries are obviously ahead of others but at least I see forward movement. As a midwife myself- I might have been burned at the stake in past eras, but now I am supported financially by our provincial health care system. I can vote. I can pretty much do what my heart desires. I have traveled enough to know this is an exception- as many women do not enjoy these freedoms. Sometimes I think it helps to look back to see just how far we have come in Canada. And hold a vision for other women in the world to hopefully meet for the near future.
