“When people self-organize around their authentic human needs, when they move beyond denial and break out of what I call the ‘social trance,’ when they stop accepting domination and trauma as part of the status quo, partnership values flourish.” — Riane Eisler, IN SWEET COMPANY: CONVERSATIONS WITH EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN ABOUT LIVING A SPIRITUAL LIFE
This Sunday, February 26th, on the eve of the opening of the 56th Session of the UN-Commission on the Status of Women, women of all spiritual traditions are invited to join together for five minutes of prayer and silence to support the creation of a UN 5th World Conference on Women.
Supporters of the 5WCW hold the hope in their hearts of a world without violence and fear, where healthy food, clean air and water, education, and medical care are available to all women; where women’s empowerment and gender equality are the norm; where voices and choices and consciousness rise from our sacred center and women’s wisdom and courage are given their full range of expression.
A UN 5WCW is not an end in itself but a huge step in empowering women and inspiring compassionate action around the globe. To learn more about this historic gathering, please visit http://5wcw.org./ and help spread the word on Facebook’s UN Women’s Circles.
Now is the time.
