I believe that the world would be a far better place if women ran it, from the Micro (Family) to the Macro (National Leadership and International Diplomacy). Not that women are not human... you are just MORE human, generally less self-centered, and more caring and thoughtful.
It also seems that as far as women's rights and leadership is concerned... "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of" insanity (Dickens). Women hold leadership posts in one part of the world and there is sexual slavery in another. But it is that difference, that slight advantage that women have in just being women, that tiny cubic centimeter of chance that may well save this world of ours from destroying civilization and the very planet that provides us life.
I am currently a professor of Educational Leadership and teach courses in Multicultural Education, Leadership, and Higher Education at a Land Grant university in the Northwest US. I have had a varied career in Education, Higher Education, foundations, and Apple Computer. I am a Geek, a technology enthusiast, and believe that technology, and websites like THE WIP, have the potential to change our world… for the better and in ways not possible before.
I took a picture of a young Hindu temple guard last month sitting on his motorcycle, head down… texting. I saw young people on cell phones and the Internet everywhere I traveled in South East Asia. I get the feeling our young people now have the collective connection and interconnection to change the world, in ways that were never possible before. I believe that websites like The WIP are part of that tiny difference, that can make all the difference.
