The audacity to assume peace can be negotiated without half the world’s population present.
There are a great many leaders – religious leaders, non-profit leaders, political leaders, community leaders – that have the audacity to assume they can negotiate peace without half the world’s population present. Women need to be present in an equitable role. Not a special guest speaker, a witness, an assistant or consultant but present, equally, at the table. Represented and heard and believed – not tolerated, not placated, not entertained for the sake of appearances or quotas – but accepted and understood with merit and respect.
Then comes action. The action is the proof as to whether you really heard us after all.
