Our concern for women in the world is based on the knowledge that women provide the education and the modeling for real empowerment of over half of the population of Mother Earth. The ability to women to contribute to the civilization of all people is critical since our world depends upon cooperation and understanding for all its peoples.

  • That we encourage teacher preparation program to include fully sensitizing teaching students toward women’s issues.
