I found an interesting video by Sister Joan Chittister, a nun who strongly believes in advocating for women leadership. It was such a powerful interview that captured my attention because I also believe in empowering myself and other women to be leaders and be more involved in communities. We have to empower ourselves to be heard and take control of our values and opinions around the world.We as women can make many changes in life and what happens all over the world, in our communities, our homes and our souls. Even Jesus encountered women, walked side by side with them, and let them be near him as important people.
Throughout the history many heroic womenhave tried to leave a mark. Many of them have been quieted, while some others kept struggling to open a path for women to keep the work. There is a lot to do, and we can be part of an important movement in a world that is changing day by day. Every time we meet others, we should be able to feel the pain others are experiencing, and be happy when they are.
Today, we are sophisticated, educated, able and capable of getting ahead and seek the beauty and the wonder of life by looking in the eyes of the Lord. We as women, have the power to undue the disturbing creation of war, any kind of war, by letting our voices heard and caring for our own environment. God did not create wars or weapons,..., human beings did. If we don't fight for a peaceful, generous, honest and fair world, all social aspects will continue being mediocre.
Could we be able, as women to destroy what mostly men in control have created, and give our sons and daughters the chance to experience a healed and better life? I think that more even, we have the responsibility to teach our next female generations to continue the job we have started. This is a call for wiser women. This is a call for more education. If we contemplate mindfully, we would be able to realize that we are responsible to take apart what is wrong, and build new lives.
Embracing my soul and believing in my purpose in life will motivate me to practice the changes that need to be taken care. We cannot be dismissed anymore because the mindset of "a world mostly led by men" through the years have been the ones making wrong decisions that have become ineffective decisions. When men are the only one making the decisions, half of the intelligence, experience and wisdom have been dismissed. The wisdom of women who can make good decisions and clean all the despicable mistakes that we (even today) have to endure.
We have to go out there and give our part, change the attitudes and be present. We are creators of lives by giving birth of other human beings; we are mothers, sisters and friends. We have a tremendous power to break all that has been ineffective in health, social, political and economical systems by using our peace, fairness, intelligence, patience and presence.
To our Amazing Men
This article is a call for women's empowerment. It is not a feminist hub, but an awakening to women to take action for a better world. Thanks to all men who believe in our empowerment and advocacy.
