It's official! On December 10, 2009 the 21st century was officially declared "The Century of Women." This new Century of Women designation is designed to focus attention and resources upon improving the conditions of women all over the planet through education and rights empowerment activities.
Having the entire 21st century being dedicated to the advancement of women could not come at a more needed or advantageous time. Achieving the women's educational and rights empowerment goals as set out in the vision for the Century of Women is vital because not only is this fairness for women (who constitute over 1/2 of the planet's population,) long overdue, it also is a practical, proven and major way to help solve the current environmental crisis as well as many other of our social problems such as overpopulation social injustice etc. It has been repeatedly demonstrated that educated women who know and exercise their equal rights help create a healthier long term balance and sustainable quality of life within their families and communities and therefore immediately improve the sustainability and quality of life conditions of life for more of the world’s population.
The Century of Women Goals Are:
1.) the full empowerment of all women (full and equal education, equal legal rights and, equal access and fairness in economic and financial power areas, and
2.) the recognition and expansion of women's equal and indispensable partnership with men essential to creating a lasting and sustainable prosperity for all. (It is unrealistic and impractical to think that post-modern society can go back to matriarchal dominant social and political structures of the past or that our current patriarchal dominant social and political structures of the present are working [as evidenced by the many global crisis we now face.] Only by creating a new true and fair balance and partnership between men and women as true equals within a Universe Evolutionary Worldview is there realistic and practical hope that civilization will continue to be sustained for generations to come.)
The Century of Women goals seek to establish conditions that have unfortunately never existed before in human history and to remedy conditions that have for too long been drastically out of balance. Unfortunately, it will take at least a century of a globally coordinated massive effort and focus by both genders of individuals, governments and non-profit and for profit organizations alike to achieve these goals for the greatest majority of the world's women.
In support of the Century of Women and its goals, Universe Spirit (the originator of the Century of Women vision,) invites women's groups, nonprofit groups, religions, corporations, governments and interested individuals all over the planet to actively co-sponsor and co-promote the Century of Women awareness and goals within their own Century of Women events and projects. Our sustained global co-sponsorship, co-promotion and co-creative work in improving of the conditions of women throughout the 21st century will result not only in our planetary civilization becoming far more balanced and fair, but also more prosperously sustainable on all levels of life.
For more understanding and information about women's indispensable and equal partnership with men critical for success the 21st century and beyond, we strongly recommend the book, Wakening the Global Heart by Anodea Judith.
