I sign the petition that says we will empower OUR children by empowering women WORLDWIDE. The balance must be restored, the men and women of the world need to put aside past differences and start playing nice together. The unequal oppurtunity,discrimination, etc., against OUR women must end if we really chose the path we say we are on as a peoples , the current imbalance :although a bit improved ,does not serve any of us. WE ALL cherish OUR women deep in our hearts , we must stop the mind, false ego from distorting what our hearts know to BE true. tHX tOM

I send the women of afgan. and the world healing energy and the promise to help bring back the balance that surely will be. :):):) IT is quite a time to walk the Earth......

On a programme Panorama in UK athey showed women and young girls who had set fire to themselves when beaten up by their husbands. I cried and felt that how in this day and age this can happen.
We need a World Wide Day that all women will stand up and fight for the rights of women and keep doing it until something is done. Too many petitions and too many words and not enough actions.

The Afgan women and children must be protected, educated, and given medical care. From what I have read, this is not being done on any level.
