Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

The increase of w omen's representation in parliament changes policy outputs.
but all over the world women were largely discriminated from politics. So now Rwanda had put into account the contribution of women in development and now the constitution provides that in decision making ,there has to be 30% of women and now in parliament 48.75% and that makes Rwanda the first country in the world,which has a large number of women in Parliament. I can not forget to say that this is a stepp forwarding to 50% because the main focus is to have equality between women and men in decision making.
So I would like u to comment, just to view about increase of women in decision making. and so why not happening in all countries?

I think alot of it has to do with ingrained social norms about "a woman's place". Even though its been well proven that exceptional women make fantastic leaders, we're still operating off of the "warlord" mentality and want strong, masculine leaders.

Its changed alot in the last 100 years though, and I think there will be alot more female representation in the years to come.

Rwanda is a trailblazer in this area. A recent study done in Kenya indicated that in general most women would not vote for a woman leader!! We have have had the 30% rule for several years but it has not been enforced. Women outnumber men here but we have less than 20 women in a parliament of 210. We are workign to make sure this is not the case come the 2010 elections. +1 Local Insight

It's good to know that some countries understand the importants of women in politics. In my opinion women are equal if not better then men when it comes to politics. To say a man is better than a woman when it comes to decision making is ludicrous. Were all equal and i hope whats going on in Rwanda starts to happen all over the world. The more diverse the people in charge the more chance for change.

This is, I believe, is the crucial issue for being able to balance out the dire economical, ecological, etcs., challenges of our world. I write about the significance of such in my article: "Estrogen Meets Testosterone/Wh*** Brain Revolution," at : http://www.anneofcarversville.com/sensual-intrepid/estrogen-meets-t...

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
