The Age of Women is upon us. All during this year that is about to end, I have felt more urgently than ever that it is time for the women of the world to rise up and seize the power that is within their grasp.
Worldwide, the ratio of male to female is essentially 50-50; here in the USA, women outnumber men. Yet in the US Congress, only 20% of those serving are female. It is time for that to change, and for women to become fully represented in the halls of government on the local, state, and national levels.
I don't believe in "god", but I could definitely embrace a female deity, for only a female could have created the universe: men tend to destroy, but women are nurturers.
So let us now turn away from the old beliefs and find our future instead under the benevolent gaze of that goddess, also known as Mother Nature.
