Bravo to Women Changing the World
I want to respond
to your analysis "WTO: Confronting a Menace of the Millennium" wherein
you challenge the reader to "Imagine
" many things. To paraphrase your
Imagine a world without democracy.
Imagine a world where public education is owned by highest bidding corporations.
Imagine a world where citizens have no right to curtail brutal regimes.
Imagine a world where workers have lost their power.
Imagine an ecologically devastated world.
Imagine a world where fresh water is scarce, polluted, and controlled
by a corporate elite.
You might well have added:
Imagine a world at war against women and children.
Imagine a world where no women can walk without fear of rape.
Imagine a new world order that exploits women at every turn, pharmaceutically,
militarily, through big dam construction, agribusiness, GE manipulation
of crops and seeds.
But you left us on a positive note!!
Imagine a point in time where all this hasn't quite happened yet. At this
crossroads in time IT IS NOT TOO LATE!!!
Bravo to the women who, wherever in their lives--in their families, communities,
workplaces, universities, research, writings, teaching, facilitating,
mentoring, political activities, organizing, operations, protests, support
groups, counseling, networking, internet activities -- are taking action
at this crossroads in time !!!
All the best,
Janet M. Eaton
