The Emancipation of Women

This speech by Layli Miller-Muro, the executive director of the Tahirih Justice Center, portrays the problems of women around the world. The reality is that women and men are equal in spiritual and mental capacities--and this reality is not accurately represented in the cultures of the world. This fundamental reality is distorted by cultures that value men over women, that educate men before women, that disregard women completely in some cases and treat them as property. If we want world peace, we must work for the full equality of women.

The Universal House of Justice wrote in 1985:
"The emancipation of women, the achievement of full equality between the sexes, is one of the most important, though less acknowledged prerequisites of peace. The denial of such equality perpetrates an injustice against one half of the world's population and promotes in men harmful attitudes and habits that are carried from the family to the workplace, to political life, and ultimately to international relations. There are no grounds, moral, practical, or biological, upon which such denial can be justified. Only as women are welcomed into full partnership in all fields of human endeavour will the moral and psychological climate be created in which international peace can emerge."

The Baha'i Writings say:
"And among the teachings of His Holiness Bahá'u'lláh is the equality of women and men. The world of humanity has two wings -- one is women and the other men. Not until both wings are equally developed can the bird fly. Should one wing remain weak, flight is impossible. Not until the world of women becomes equal to the world of men in the acquisition of virtues and perfections, can success and prosperity be attained as they ought to be." --
(Abdu'l-Baha, Baha'i World Faith - Abdu'l-Baha Section, p. 288)

I was listening to a talk somewhere--I don't remember the source--a women was saying, "Boys, if you don't understand the equality of women and men, ask your mother; she'll explain it to you!"

Thanks for listening,

Ron

Or, at another time, if placed by the http://startso11.info/three+doors+down+be+like+that+t%C5%82umaczenie.html dream in a sexually exciting situation, he thinks in his sleep: I do not care to continue this dream and exhaust myself by a pollution; I prefer to defer it in favor of a real situation.. You 'member dem colts, Mars' Pendleton? I don't seem to recall the colts, said the Major. http://startso11.info/blueconnect.pl.html. It was remembered also that a mysterious note had been handed to him at the conclusion of his speech--evidently http://startso11.info/www.earth.google.com.pl.html a challenge from the State Attorney.. Under unusual http://rebestal.info/reklama+pi%C5%82a.html and extreme circumstances, these dreams of the infantile type become very frequent.. Tabb said http://startso11.info/www.witchklub.pl.html that she didn't know how many lumps of sugar he took in his coffee.. , becomes the preliminary condition of http://startso11.info/www.przeboje.pl.html repression.. We thus come near to the popular idea of an interpretation of dreams, and, on the other hand, possess again the technique of the ancients, among http://startso11.info/ring+center.html whom the interpretation of dreams was identical with their explanation through symbolism.. Polly disliked to go, not being, http://startso11.info/cyklo+trade.html in fact, a hens'-rights hen, and transferred her stock to me.. The negroes fled--they dared not trust their feelings; even Alicia sniggered unobtrusively; Grandfather Claiborne chuckled, and Aunt Missouri frankly collapsed http://rebestal.info/birmingham.pl.html into her rocking-chair, bubbling with mirth, crying out: Good for you, Ross! Seems you did know how to call on the girls, after all.. But my best Joseph, http://storyah44.info/poszukuje+klasy.html you make your mother tremble.. Now hast http://startso11.info/www.imageguardian.html thou what thou hast longed for.. A dress-rehearsal occupied the afternoon before the day of days, and the pathetic expostulations of the lovely Mary-- Mine http://startso11.info/wzmacniacz.html all doth hang--my life--my destiny-- Upon my words--upon the force of tears!-- aided by the long veil, and the emotion which sympathy brought into Ellen's countenance, proved too much for the enforced prudence of Master Horner.. He pointed out the peculiar topography of the place, and Ralph got back in http://startso11.info/rolki.html the coach.. Kingsbury's before breakfast. http://startso11.info/Religia+we+Wroc%C5%82awiu.pl.html. A frequent, not http://rebestal.info/bonus+systems.html very intelligible, symbol for the same is a nail-file (on account of the rubbing and scraping?).. Hargraves looked http://storyah44.info/polishdating.co.uk.html disconcerted.. His face, now that the curtain was down and he http://startso11.info/poprawa+zachowania.html was leaving the stage, was doleful, almost sullen.. Soon an old darkey appeared in the doorway, with his hat in hand, bowing, and scraping with one http://startso11.info/kolporter+korona+kielce.html clumsy foot.. Then, to Ross's dismay, Abner sank down on the lowest http://startso11.info/bal+office.html step of the porch, the westering sun full in his hopeless eyes.. But eventually the http://startso11.info/policja+radziej%C3%B3w.html words became intelligible and took meaning...

Although around 35%-40% of couples will get pregnant in 3 months, it can take up to 18 months for 90% of normal couples to conceive.
Before attempting to produce multiples, women should educate themselves on the specific health risks involved in having two or more babies at once.
