For starters, I am assuming that you are an intelligent/bright/educated/wise/ enlightened lady. You wouldn't have gotten here if otherwise!
I am sure that you know that ladies fought for the right to vote and hold political office (full suffrage rights). In most countries these rights started trickling in in the late 1800 and early 1900.
Unfortunately, the more things change, the more they remain the same! Picture this: before 1906, men voted for men, therefore, all elective seats were held by men. After 1906 ladies and men continued voting for men and, therefore, elective positions continue to be dominated by men (even in the US of A)!
This is mainly due to the fact that some ladies believe that ‘leaders’ is a Greek word meaning ‘men’. This, in effect, means that they can't vote for lady candidates, thereby exposing ladies to the indignity of having to beg for a third of elective seats!
This project Queensville 2012 MDG3's aim is to turn ladies into real Queens who WIN half (1/2) of all the elective positions ( MPs, Governors, Senators) in 2012, with pride and dignity! This will, in effect, create a GENDER FOUNTAIN from which gender equity will flow to the rest of the society through Gender Friendly legislation.
How can you help? Three ways:
1) Vote ONLY for lady candidates in 2012 general elections for the above posts.
2) Tell all your lady acquaintances (friends and enemies) to vote ONLY for lady candidates.
By the bye,Voting for a lady is one of the most powerful ways of convincing your daughter that she is( and ladies in general are)STRONG and capable of being LEADERS!
In the unlikely event that we don't end up with about 50% representation of ladies in elective positions, I will be the first person to advocate for the ladies to be denied the right to vote and hold office! After all men do not require ladies' votes in order to vote for men!!
