6. Yes, The Woman ARE Coming!

With an agenda to actually take care of humanity and the planet that sustains us. Shocking, I know.

It was no less than 1993 or so when my logics teacher in community college threw out the question of whether women were suited to roles in government leadership. He was actually trying to teach us how to order our thinking via the standards of logical discourse.

One of my younger male co-students actually used the "women's hormones make them unfit" argument. Right, because we wouldn't want estrogen flowing in the streets. Someone might get nurtured. I did not actually make that argument in class, but I did point out that testosterone hasn't exactly made for a peaceful world.

It is amazing that so many men fear a world where women share power. We couldn't possibly screw it up any worse than men have managed to do all on their own.

20. The right wing has always used women as Trojan horses. Remember Maggie Thatcher?

Here in Orange County, CA, the GOP was able to flip a blue House seat back to red in 2020 by running the Asian wife of the white male former Chair of the State Republican Party. Hopefully it will flip back to blue in 2022 once voters realize what a right wing nutjob puppet she is. One of her first votes this month in the House was to vote No on impeachment.

What's revolutionary about the crop of female world leaders shown in that video is that for the most part they are progressive, and definitely their own women.

12. Great!!!!

I also didn’t realize there are
so many women in top roles already. This gives me hope that change will continue to happen. And I am excited to show this to my daughter (who is a little bit young to truly grasp the importance) to reinforce that she can dream of becoming anything she wants and it CAN happen.

19. The US is pitifully far down the list of countries when it comes to women's rights, their

representation in politics (all politics, not just the top tier) business, education, health outcomes, etc.

So inspiring to see so many women leaders—and to see that the US finally has a woman as the second in command!

17. And let us remember that, according to Forbes, the seven countries with the best outcomes

with CoViD are all run by women. And Forbes is not exactly an enthusiastic proponent of women's rights.

23. Literally, chills and goose bumps all over my arms and eyes welling up with tears! I wonder if men

Get as emotional about our female progress as we do? Thanks for sharing this with us! PS: it wouldn't be nearly as effective without that music!
