Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Engaging Men and Boys as Partners in Creating Gender Equality http://www.unfpa.org/public/news/pid/4996 It is essential to state that boys are also prone to disempowerment as evident in the Ibo people example.

The Ibo people of Nigeria are inclined more towards educating the girl child and giving the boys out to be tutored by a trader. Ibo boys apprentice are rampant all over Nigeria. They are expected to serve their masters for several years before gaining freedom to start their own trade with the money the master must have saved for him.

Gender inequality of this type is evident in the front of Universities where banners desplaying the need for boychild Education. The evidence is also clear in lecture halls where females outnumbers the males.

But the story is in another dimention when you go to the Northern part of Nigeria. Here, the position is in tandem with World-wide view which is the deprivation of the girl-child. Though it is possible to give swift solution to the former, considering the beaming fact that their situation is tied to economics, the latter is rather combersom owing to cultural and religious appendage.

The story is different in the south-south giopolitical zone where the attitude is getting to the proximity of Equal opportunity.

When we say, Gender Inequality, women are the victims. For a progress to be made, the minute example of its effect on males must be brought to the table. As such, the fight for gender equality will be seen as a collective fight that do not discriminate. And this will end the "we against them" syndrom that is rather retarding.

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
