It seems a really important time for women in the world. Since last year, women have begun rising up for women's rights more than ever. Some men have been supporting women in their challenge of abuse, violence and rape, and the general way in which women have been used and abused for centuries. Some very patriarchal cultures, for example India, have a very controlling way of viewing women; very behind the times of the changing cultural perspective on women, and in other cultures women are also seen as second class citizens. It is perfectly natural that the growing energy of anger and frustration of women, has been building, and now that energy has reach tipping point and women are voicing their needs more and more.
We are after all 50% of the global population, so this is our time. A time of more balance between the sexes and a balance of the feminine and masculine in society.
Women tried to bring that balance back many years ago when feminism was a new concept, and it did do a lot, but it also lacked the real feminine energy. It was more a masculine energy embodied in the feminine. It was a starting point to improve women's rights.
|Margaret Thatcher An example of an unbalanced|
masculine energy embodied in female form.
I feel that with many new examples of group dynamics, like ladettes*, came an unbalanced power in women. Women have become the predators when for example out drinking with friends, preying on men. We need to swing the pendulum back towards the centre, and find our strength in the strong, gentle feminine energy; the intuitive and the receptive qualities of our essential natures.

I hope to see the porn industry change and for more women to say no to partners that have been brainwashed to think healthy sexual behaviour is what they see in porn movies. This is simply not true. Letting a man deep-throat you, or express his orgasm on your face is not healthy sex, it is dominance and power of the patriarchal energy. The porn industry is an element of the imbalance of masculine/feminine and I am glad that books like 'Fifty Shades of Grey' are allowing women to explore their sexual nature more, yet even then, the man has the power and control over the woman.
I can't be the only one who is deeply offended by the porn industry, and the education it is breeding in the men of the world.
So on this International Women's Day, I ask you,
what do you feel as a woman about the changes taking place?
What are your views on the porn industry?
