Are the rights of women and children a key to world peace? - 09/02/2013
My last post was about our violent behaviour and the link with our own wounds. Riane Eisler author of The Chalice & The Blade and her award-winning The Power of Partnership has her own particular take on violence: "The link",she has said, "between intimate violence in the home and the international violence of terrorism and war is as tightly bound together as the fingers of a clenched fist." Eisler is president of the Center for Partnership Studies and the founder with Nobel Peace Laureate Betty Williams of the Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence . "A central finding from Eisler’s research is a link between top-down, war-like regimes and the oppression of women. A pioneer in advancing women’s and children’s human rights, Eisler calls on us to recognize that what we call “women’s issues” and “children’s issues” are central to human rights, prosperity, and peace for everyone. Where the human rights of women and children are respected and protected, communities, nations, and Earth thrive." Plenty of food for thought there.

Are the rights of women and children a key to world peace?
