Can We Evolve Toward Full Female Equality Worldwide In Time?

Looking at the hostilities between nations now exacerbated by the worldwide pandemic one can draw many conclusions.

One would be that male control of governance has led the world into the real danger of nuclear war.

Examples of female world leaders are few but certainly Germany’s Angela Markell stands out.

What if our world accorded equality to women instead of refusing them full freedom under law to achieve whatever goals in life they might seek?

The USA can offer countless examples of the achievements women have made when they chose—often with little or no help—to follow their stars!

Women here and elsewhere have already achieved top places in every secular category here except the US Presidency.

Acknowledging their right to full equality would of course expose many institutions which had not. That Pope Francis just named DC’s first black Cardinal hardly opens the way for a women Pope.

Confirmation of Amy Comey Barrett to our Supreme Court which will replace Justice Ginsberg, leaving still 3 women on the Court, hardly forecasts prospects for reproductive freedom or even the reasonable humanity for health care for our most vulnerable citizens.

This coming election with its sharply different candidates still fails to raise the seminal need as a primary priority for us and for the world to focus on giving females full equality ASAP!

Some Key Issues in the bight?

Human numbers—we will have 8 billion in less than a decade, up 6 billion since 1931.

Global Warming—apparently dismissed by the Republican sitting President.

Nuclear war threats with growing militancy in Asia.

Add your own dangerous pending issue unsolved by the males in charge of our planets governments.

Women fully empowered would not be quick to send their sons to “police actions”!

Think about it. Do we need a new Marshall Plan for women?

While it would be hard to explain to the present generations of Baby Boomers or Millennials by those of us who lived during WWII and its aftermath, that nothing America did after defeating Nazi Germany or Japan was more meaningful than what America did in helping a staggering Europe than the Marshall Plan. Its implementation helped foster recovery in Europe (and gave a vision for how to help Japan) which gave the free world decades of prosperity.

What if Biden wins? Would he see this initiative as a game changer? Would the new VP?
