Equal rights for women for a safer world

July 3, 2007

I was doing a bit of deep thinking yesterday – as you do – and my thoughts ranged over politics, women’s rights and wars.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t most of the world’s trouble spots (Iraq, Somalia, Afganistan, Rwanda …) countries where women do not have anything close to equal rights with men.

England was quite a war-mongering nation until the last 100 years, when women have had the vote and (pretty well) equal rights. When the UK entered the Iraq invasion/war weren’t there demonstrations and surveys which showed that most men were for the war and most women against it? Weren’t the Greenham Common protestors mostly women?

So, the answer to world peace is to ensure that women have equal rights in all countries. There, that wasn’t too hard, was it?

    wait a moment, its all too obvious to me now. these countries also dont eat as much cheddar cheese as we do lack of cheese causes war.

    they are also not as rich as we are maybe if they had money they wouldn’t be at war. it could be its because they are not white and white people are more developed than they are.

    or perhaps the reason we do not go to war as often is because the world is our petridish and we are the dominant organism. we cause and eneble the wars in these places, we rule via the iron fist of mammon.
