Women of the 21st century

  1. 1. Freedom of speech Freedom from fear Freedom from torture Freedom from enslavement Freedom to vote Freedom of religion Freedom of choice
  2. 2. Women
  3. 3. Our Vedas tell us that women held an important place in ancient culture. No ritual was ever complete without the presence of a woman by her man’s side. All our gods are worshipped alongside their heavenly consorts. There is no dichotomy there.
  4. 4. Events on Earth demand the emergence of the feminine essence of Love all around. In the 21st century women do not need to look at the historical injustices done to her. It’s time to put all that behind her and look forward to her empowered role in this ‘Aquarian age’. Women today need not look anywhere for a perfect role model.
  5. 5. The time is ripe for women of all races, castes, class, and nationalities to come together to be the harbinger of this change. Mother Earth is crying for attention, soon it will show its true might and annihilate all the evil forces along the way.
  6. 6.  21st century is the century for change. The Planet Earth is ready for ‘The Shift of the Ages’. In this New Age, love and compassion will rule the roost, and the woman with her natural attributes of compassion will sow the seeds of global transformation. These changes have already begun, and soon they will gain an unprecedented momentum.
  7. 7. Recent years have shown many more females enroll in graduate ,law and medical programs following college. The University of Michigan was the first state medical school to fully accept women in 1870; in contrast, 42% of the students in the Stanford medical school in 1995 were women. The type of expertise gained at such schools makes it possible for women to obtain the high-salary jobs that would otherwise be out of their reach.
  8. 8. Changing women The desire to advance their career requires women to commit to years of competition and relentless work while establishing a stable, successful working situation. This often means late nights at the office and frequent business trips with little time to maintain a successful relationship, let alone start a family. In the past, these years were used to settle down in a relationship and have children, but now many women are putting motherhood on hold while they concentrate on advancing their careers.
  9. 9. Not only are women living different lives than their mothers before them, they are living longer lives as well. According to the Center for Disease Control, the life expectancy of an American woman in 1900 was 48.3 years. In 1950 their life expectancy rose to 71.1 years, and in 2000 they reached a new high with a life expectancy of 79.5 years.
  10. 10. The modern career woman, equipped with a rich education and a powerful drive, boasts a different image than her female predecessors. The life of a woman has changed drastically over the past hundred years, and will continue to evolve for years to come. With their access to high degrees of education, women are able to venture into new fields and excel in new careers, and by doing so are changing the role they play in society.
  11. 11. Today women are taking a different approach towards their health than they did in previous generations. Seeking information through available resources including newspapers, magazines and the Internet, women today are more health conscious and informed. They are taking an active role in their health care by learning to demand certain tests, get second opinions and to ask their doctors all of the right questions.
  12. 12. Looking ahead Today at the dawn of the 21st century the women across the world are placed at a position of advantage. They are literally on the move. They are paying heed to their inner voice. They are no longer interested in hollow jargon and jingoism. They are finding their individual and collective voice. They are aligned with their conscience, moving ahead with purposeful strides.
  13. 13. Let me assure you that the 21st century is the century of the ‘feminine’. If you don’t believe me now, you soon will......
