Women will save the world

I would like to give a shout out to “fempreneurs” all over the globe! What is happening now for women has not taken place since the 19th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution was ratified in 1920. It’s a very silent tsunami that is picking up speed at record rates.

No, this movement is not about bra burning. It’s about leading the global economy. It’s about being seen, heard and recognized using a very different strategy beyond the need to rely on government policy; who has their hand out for a political donation; or who is in the White House at any given time.

The Dalai Lama made this statement during the Vancouver Peace Summit 2009, “The world will be saved by the western woman.” Now, to all my Christian friends, I know who the ultimate savior of the world is; the Dalai Lama’s statement is in reference to the strides that the western woman has been able to make due to the courageous efforts of women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and Susan B. Anthony.

What is sexy for women in the 21st Century is sheer intelligence, and we are passing it on!
