It shall not take a thousand years. And, no, I am not saying that women will take over, or that they should. What I am saying is that we are becoming conscious leaders with an appreciation for those skills often referred to as feminine: investing gains back into communities, and social growth, Leading with compassion, Listening, Considering the holistic impact of our actions as leaders and individuals are only a few. This does mean that women will be recognised as capable of leading and given the opportunity to do so. This does mean, that they will protect their communities and families with ferocity and passion. This does mean that they will negotiate to maintain peace providing an environment in which all feel nurtured to continue grow in. This does mean, we have a way to go, but we are on the right road. This does mean that we each have a lot of work to do to keep us on that road, together. I am looking forward to being part of the journey.
