Females have the power now in these times to call out the wrongs being done to them. Women now are more willing to change the goalposts of their lives. It might mean disrupting lifestyles, but if women wish to change their engagement with males, then many things need to change. Happiness is found in the small choices you make about your life, every day. You can be in control of your life - to plan your independence on so many levels, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. Women do not wish to marginalise men. this is about inviting them to join the quest for uplifting humanity to where it needs to be: above the gross and odious nature of such male behaviour, which they believe is their right to have. In such a culture of corruptive behaviour, men want women to be subservient to their needs. it just does not make sense in this modern world. Make choices that matter to you, not to men such as these.
In future men may begin to understand that they may not be getting so much out of female subjugation, as they were before. Women may not be prepared to remain in such relationships and in the future, there will be more avenues for support than there are now. In my understanding, woman and people of various diversity no longer wish to be a part of such disparity. Collectively, they will more likely band together more and employ their support systems to create a cache of reinforcement whilst the tide is turning. It may sound "pie in the sky" to some, but change comes when collective determination to make it happen, comes into play. The compelling factor is that more women are prepared to speak out about the behaviour: naming culprits, and being determined to follow through, with the supports they have gathered around them, and that are provided in the community, which will make some males think twice before they abuse and use their partners and children as possessions they own and can do what they like, with. Fact: domestic violence and sexual abuse is a crime of "criminal assault". Laws will change and penalites in the future will be more severe. Yes, there will be fallout from that, like any struggle worth having. Here's the thing! Females are no longer willing for males to believe they "own" female's bodies, or minds. Many females are no longer willing to be chattels, belongings, slaves, servants or commodities. Neither are they willing to be mere trophies or 'arm candy', as some are referred to. The catch cry for the release of such bondange, is this song, You Don't Own Me. Lesley Gore sang the song in 1963. it too became a feminist anthem with civil rights roots (much like Aretha Franklin's RESPECT). it tells its own story. Its lyrics are as potent today as they were then - perhaps even more so... "Don't tell me what to say and don't tell me what to do" ... I was surprised to note it was written by two men, John Madara and David White, in Philadelphia, USA. If you listen to it, you will feel the power of freedom building in the lyrics as the words tell it like it is. It may not be a new song, but its power is not diminished in the slightest. It has a slow build up, but worth listening to if you need a jolt of feminine empowerment. Get a hold of this song and belt it out as loudly as you can. Certain songs make people feel so empowered. So many songs now are anthems to humanity.
Choose music which makes you sing your power.
It is ludicrous to imagine in this modern society, the phrase "You Don't Own Me" should even need to be said. To put that concept at rest, we need to find our own adaptive mechanisms and turn them on! We must work on our own empowerment and in further chapters we will be touching on ways to do that. People need to be acquainted with the knowledge that facts, in our modern world, are not necessarily found in conspiracy theories, or online, or even in ancient traditions. People need to seek appropriate avenues to find out what works for them in the 2020's. In this book there are some skills of discernment, awareness, insight and intuition which I am bringing into the feminine framework, which vulnerable women may adopt if they feel they suit their lives better. Skills for change. skills people may make for the right reasons for them, and to inform others around them. SET THE STANDARD: Sex Discriminatin Commissioner, Kate Jenkins Report - 30/11/2021 has announced that The Independent Review into Commonwealth Parliamentary workplaces was established by the Federal Government with support from the Federal Opposition and the Crossbench: so significant. The Review was asked to make recommendations to ensure the Commonwealth parliamentary workplaces are safe and respectful, and that the nation's Parliament reflects best practice in prevention and response to bullying, sexual harassment and sexual assault. This is the result of 7 months of deep engagement with current and former staff and parliamentarians from across all parliamentary workplaces. this, it is hoped, will strengthen leadership, diversity, equality, inclusion. It will establish systems of support. It will create standards of reporting and accountability, and it will provide safety and wellbeing to mitigate risk factors for misconduct and more. It should have been done decades ago! This is the tragedy of it all. it is more than maddening. the voices have been heard. The voices will be heard. Before now, women speaking out, was far too fraught. Speaking out has come into its own! In this book you will no doubt find things that offend you, and yet, that is not my intention. some things that are not right about our national and global societies will be revealed so that people can really see the toxicity of the behaviour lurking amongst us. Some are easier to see than others. the aim of this book is to highlight the terrible flaws of humanity, because in doing so, we see them for what they are. Only then, can we be more determined to do something about them. Enough is Enough! things must change. Racism, hypocrisy, sexism, discrimination, bias and bigotry are all residing in the very places they should not! they have been there for so long it is hard to recognise them until after they have done considerable harm. Everyone suffers some form of misery when they come into play.
In the creed, Do No Harm, you find many faiths which provide support for various people. while you live life with respectful and compassionate intent, it doesn't matter if you are a Buddhist, a Baptist, a Sharman, a Rabbi, a Muslim, or a Christian, or whatever faith is yours: you have the choice to be a thoroughly decent person. By taking responsibility for your own actions and behaviour, and inviting others to do the same, we can all change things for the better.
Enough is Enough! shines a spotlight on toxic masculinity, the reach of misogynistic coercive control, and how a patriarchal mindset has been so threatening to women and children around the world.
Amy Croft, author of A Longing for Justice, expands on many of the themes she tackled in her first ground-breaking work to reveal how women need to empower themselves in the twenty-first century.
She answers questions such as:
• What would you do when you are fed up with the so-called prerogative of male entitlement and paternal patronisation that is impacting millions around the world?
• What do you do when you abhor sexist, misogynistic attitudes, and see the need for systemic change to reflect more equitable values?
A groundswell movement, of global, collective protests, signals that people everywhere are tired of such man-made entitlement, waging wars, and bringing humanity down.
This book empowers others to find a path to patriarchal accountability, and to put right the wrongs, which impact badly, on women, children, and men, in a global society.
