“My persuasion can build a nation, endless power, the love we can devour you’ll do anything for me.” -Beyonce, Who Run the World (Girls)
It’s not my favorite song but when it comes to the particular effect that girls have on the world, words like this aren’t often spoken. Despite Beyonce’s “girl power” anthem, the world at large actually resembles a patriarchal society. But what if the world was run by girls? At the very least, it sounds like a refreshing change of pace. Nature gives the female half of our species abilities males lack. In a world facing trying times, widespread use of feminine traits and abilities stand to benefit us all.
A female dominated society is hard to imagine steeped in our male driven reality, but the world’s conflicts require more compassion, dialogue and understanding. Issues that should be within the realm of common sense divides votes, like ensuring the well-being of citizens with affordable healthcare. This kind of nonsense just wouldn’t happen under a Girl World Order (GWO).
So what’s a GWO?
A society whose underlying principals attribute power to women, yet promote an egalitarian environment. Everything from the simple stuff like a man taking a woman’s last name and the inheritance chain being linked to girls to the majority of leaders being women. Basically the gender opposite of the reality we know and love.
In some circles, this kind of talk is heresy. In others it will warrant tapping of your cell phone and email. Maybe it merely sounds like wishful thinking. Though when you see a world that can be better by being radically different, wishful thinking is always what helps get you there. So join us as we put on a pair of “what if” goggles to imagine some of the ways we’d be better off with girls running the world.
