Embrace Your Feminine

(You too, guys)

| November / December 2005

We live in dark times of war and suffering. But it bolsters our faith that so many people, especially women, are standing up for peace and hope. Whether it's Cindy Sheehan's celebrated call for accountability in Iraq (meetwithcindy.org), or the quieter efforts of organizations like Women For Women, which offers financial and emotional support for war victims (womenforwomen.org), women's work is making a difference.

What's more, women are bringing a new spirit not only to the realm of social action, but also to the business world and to their own communities. Qualities like compassion, nurturing, and caregiving that are traditionally ascribed to women (and often belittled) are critical for our future. Reasonable people can disagree about whether these traits are innate or inculcated. But what's clear to us is that the world sorely needs these archetypal female qualities in our women. And in our men. -- The Editors
