"So what am I not supposed to have an opinion
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman
Call me a bitch cuz I speak what's on my mind
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled



Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout louder!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave them proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down!!!"

As co-administator of this group, I would like to thank all of you for joining. Both peacenut and I are committed anti-authoritarians, so we don't wish to LEAD the group anywhere, though we may decide to remove comments that are off-topic and clogging up a site meant for exchange of ideas and mutual support. (Please no standardised Internet greeting cards, though on-topic videos will be appreciated.)
The group belongs to ALL of us, and the directions it takes depend on YOUR energy as well as mine or peacenut's.
Start up discussions. If they are attempts to convert us all to Islam (OR Christianity) they will be removed. Not because peacenut and I are non-believers, but because this is not the place for such messages. If however, they are discussions about the Woman's role in Islam (or Christianity), they will be permitted... though we would prefer you to addess the topic to all religions in general, and allow individual comments to deal with individual religions.
Not being sure whether posting on this page results in all of you receiving notification via your e-mail service, I'll send a copy of this to your inboxes. Please let me know if you get it repeated, and I'll learn my lesson...

A VERY warm welcome to you, Miss Mina!
And what a fantastic double kick-start you've given to this group.
Especially the poem.
When is the last time that an army of Women went out to wage War on another country... or tribe?!
And yet most women would be willing to lay down their lives for the ones they love.
There is a BIG difference between willingness to lay down your life to save a loved one and taking a life for some stupid concept such as "patriotic honour"!

Women have always been the backbone of Peace initiatives... and yet it is often Men who take the credit, who become the famous faces, the "leaders".
It is high time that we Women steered the Peace Movement away from personality cults, jostling for attention, and power games. Those are just Wars on a smaller scale.
It is high time that Men learned to honour the "female" aspect within themselves.
... They could also start to do their fair share of the housework, too!

Arise, then, women of this day!
Arise all women who have hearts,
Whether your baptism be that of water or of tears

Say firmly:
"We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies,
Our husbands shall not come to us reeking of carnage,
For caresses and applause.

Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and

We women of one country
Will be too tender of those of another country
To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.

From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with
Our own. It says, "Disarm, Disarm!"
The sword of murder is not the balance of justice!
Blood does not wipe out dishonor
Nor violence indicate possession.

As men have often forsaken the plow and the anvil at the summons of

Let women now leave all that may be left of home
For a great and earnest day of counsel.

Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
Let them then solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means

Whereby the great human family can live in peace,
Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar,
But of God.

In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask
That a general congress of women without limit of nationality
May be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient

And at the earliest period consistent with its objects
To promote the alliance of the different nationalities,
The amicable settlement of international questions.

The great and general interests of peace.

penned in Boston by Julia Ward Howe (the initiator of "Mother's Day") in 1870
