Women of the World — Imagine
Imagine if all the women of the world could stop, stand up, and insist on peaceful interaction. More and more women everywhere are doing just that.
INDIA—On January 1, 2019, FIVE MILLION women formed a 620 kilometer wall (385 miles) across the length of the southern state of Kerala, standing in place for 15 minutes, to protest a ban on women "of menstruating age" from entering the Sabarimala temple in Kerala. One report states, "Even as women of all ages lined up on one side of the highway, many of their menfolk — husbands, friends and relatives — lined up on the other side to show their support." You can read more about it here and here or search for "women's wall India" but here's the thing. FIVE MILLION WOMEN gathered and stood shoulder to shoulder to stand united for something they believe in. WOW! Speechless. Inspired. WOW!
NOTE: I originally featured this story in the January 2019 issue of Inspired 101 News. Today, I still say WOW!
