Here at the World Mission Foundation, I am proud to announce our work alongside the UN ECOSOC as we strive toward one of our most important and shared global missions, namely, the fight for a more equitable and egalitarian world for our women and girls. I ensure that the women and young ladies around the world serve in their various positions of leadership with class, dignity, wisdom, and grace. I have been implementing leadership and examples for girls around the world sources of tremendous value to our society. And the dual roles that I manage to balance, leading and serving in professional capacities as well as helping to raise new generations of human beings should they choose to become mothers, demonstrate incredible inner strength that they possess.
It is imperative to note that support is valuable to our cause as well as time and attention as we embark in our quest for empowering women and girls in all areas. They are seeds that will take root and spread the message to every corner of the world, the message that women wherever they are from, can and must play a greater role in shaping the future of our societies and that we have the necessary tools to change this world for the better. All that remains is that we take action to ensure that a better world exists for our wives, daughters, sisters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, friends and even strangers alike. I say “strangers alike” because it is important for me to highlight that a woman’s inherent importance and value in this world is not relative to her relationship to any particular man. They are whole and unique human beings, and as such, are worthy of respect regardless of personal affiliation or familial relation. So, to all of the women of the world, and especially those who rise to the occasion and call for leadership, thank you. Thank you for existing, thank you for serving, thank you for leading, and thank you above all for simply being the unique individuals you all are.
Note: The three central elements of Women in Leadership include:
1.) Women’s full and effective participation in decision-making in public life.
2.) The elimination of violence against women in order to achieve greater gender equality.
3.) The Empowerment of all women and girls.
When combined, all three elements offer a healthy, if not imperfect and much-needed set of remedies, as we look to tackle and alleviate the multitude of issues that women and girls around the world face in day to day life. And while they may not cover every available base, they go a long way toward highlighting some key problem areas and the workable solutions and suggestions that accompany them. Element number one I hold in particularly high regard, because it represents the proverbial “glass ceiling.”
