The Role of Women in Creating a Peaceful World

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has said. “The world would be a peaceful place if it were ruled by women…Women were by nature more inclined towards compassion, whereas men tend to feel they have to be macho. You are basically life-giving, life-affirming. That is what you are naturally when you are unspoilt… Women can actually make society civil…Actually it is very straightforward: let women take over.”

I have written articles and made videos about this, as I see female empowerment as the only practical way we can create a peaceful world. My latest article on this, published on the Hub pages, is called, “A Practical Method of Creating a Loving and Caring World.”
