Troublesome Patriarchal Dominance - Time For More Women in Positions of Power

unique women of the world

Women from around the world that are living on the edge, doing something special, making a difference or generally in possession of a unique nature. In my book these women should be put in positions of power and allowed a chance to see what they would add to our world, instead of the men that promise blah-blah-blah and then fill their own pockets as well as the pockets of their buddies. The way I see it, any of this diverse group of women would be an improvement...

These are the kind of women that should be put in positions of power. They would make positive contributions with their time and resources and leave the world better for having been here. And not to mention the fact that they all certainly look far more appealing...

From century to century throughout history the men have ruled the roost in politics and business and relegated the home as the place where the women were to direct their attention and efforts. The women have done their job admirably, but the men have failed miserably in most cases. Their politics are corrupt and their businesses have turned into large greedy corporations. The patriarchal model is evidently not working so well - so maybe it's time to hand the reins over to the women. The wars and conflicts around the world are the result of male dominance in politics, and more often than not, are set in motion to benefit male controlled corporate interests. Turn on the evening news anywhere in the world and you'll see images of angry men in conflict and women and children in flight. It is time for change...

Women Of Substance - Interesting and Unique Women

unique women of the world

Worldwide women are asserting themselves and taking charge of everything from the corporate boardroom to more artistic and unique positions in the world of art, design, cuisine and adventure travel. On the African continent women are raising themselves into postions of power in politics, the arts and business. Women are no longer to be kept within stereotypical confines and are no longer asking for empowerment, but are simply taking charge over their lives and the situations and events that affect them. Above are just three of these self empowered females.

Original Adventure Travellers


 

A different traveller has emerged in the current generation that are looking for more than just merely going sight-seeing. The new travelers are using their journeys to find where they belong in the world both physically and spiritually by immersing themselves in different cultures. Some use it to change their own perspectives and yet others use it as an opportunity to effect positive changes in the cultures they visit. But you do not need to have a mission to embark on your own journey. The following stories will provide a glimpse at what some of these new travelers are doing when they travel. Travelling is no longer limited to a matter of weeks spent away from a job, but has to many replaced the job with an occupation more interesting and fulfilling. Many of the reasons why people travel today are similar to the reasons why both men and women embarked on extensive journeys at the turn of the 19th century. One of the main reasons is that they want firsthand knowledge and experience of the world in which they live.

Often the modern day adventure traveller more than likely carries a pocket-sized digital camera, a credit card, cell phone and even a laptop computer. Travels on commercial airlines, on buses, by train or in a car. Sleeps in hotels, pensions or hostels occasionally if not camping out in a high-tech tent with a wind-proof stove, goose-down sleeping bag and Perrier water from a super-lightweight titanium flask. Gets up in the morning and puts on a pair of Addidas Cuzco hiking boots after pulling on an Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirt and slipping on a Helly Hansen Helly Tech waterproof, breathable textile jacket with several high-energy bars in the pockets. Most of the travellers adventure has been in waiting for UPS to show up at the door with the latest must have travel gear, so when its time to travel, it is a wonder that this traveller has not run out of cash and been forced to just stay home by the telly and watch the Discovery Channel. But that is not to say that all modern day adventure travellers fit this description. Many take on tough challenges, although not as extreme as their counterparts near the turn of the century. Arnold Henry Savage Landor, Isabella Lucy Bird and Thomas Stevens were not modern day adventure travellers, but saw and recorded more people and their customs on more continents than most modern day travellers - and did the majority of their travels on steamships, horseback or on foot. Read their travel books that are free e-book downloads in a choice of formats at the bottom of each of their pages.
