World governments are too patriarchal, too warlike in 2021. Can dwindling numbers of female influencers bring peace?



It is women who are making a difference to world peace, despite women being vulnerable and oppressed. More women leadership is needed say global women’s groups; also, Pope Francis.


“Today women and children have warlike gestures to fear from men running governments in Washington DC, Moscow, Beijing, Canberra, London, Ottawa, North Korea, Belarus, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Lybia and Japan,” says Katie Alsop of RINJ Women, a global women’s rights movement.

“Each of these leaders are erratic, unpredictable, and untrustworthy,” the feminist told FPMag.

“In the past 21 days of October, the waters of the Asian Seas have been churning with nuclear submarines bumping into things; massive warships conducting guns and missile drills; parades of warships sailing past coastal shores of peace loving civilian populations; and  massive air force bombers and shrieking fighter jets screaming through territorial air defence identification zones. This must stop,” explains Sara Qin from The Nurses Without Borders in Shenzhen, China.

Read if you wish:

  1. Not pretty, but democracy is beautiful, at the core. Women like Leni Robredo, Maria Ressa, Leila de Lima know this to be true.
  2. Misogyny wars wherein innocent unarmed women and children are forced to suffer the most tragedy.

The influence of women, like COVID-vaccines, is waning.

Women like Angela Merkel, the first female Chancellor of Germany, a true Shero, 2005 to 2021, will be sadly missed as the global example of democratic values, and leadership with both humility and humanity.

  • Global participation rate of women in national-level parliaments is barely 24% and that number is massively skewed by China’s enormous general assembly which is one-quarter women. Nevertheless there is not one woman in China’s Politburo Standing Committee according to the New China News Agency an official state-run press agency of the People’s Republic of China.
  • Regrettably, 2% of all presidential posts in the world are women according to research done by Wikipedia.

Look: “NATO is the quintessential unabashed gender unequal patriarch and now it wants to not only make war in the North Atlantic but all over the world,” said Ms. Alsop.

“The G7 leaders are losing one of their best to retirement. Pictured at the back right is the extraordinary Ursula Gertrud von der Leyen, a German politician &  physician, President of the European Commission since 1 December 2019. A male person has replaced Angela Merkel who will be missed by millions of women who have come to truly love her,” Katie Alsop told FPMag.

“Women and girls seek peaceful resolutions in global hotspots where antagonists like America and Britain travel in warships to far shores and intimidate defenders like North Korea, Russia and China in their own regions,” said Geraldine Frisque, spokesperson for The RINJ Foundation.


Demilitarize Asian Seas

Women and girls are seeking a resolution for the many disputes in the Asian Seas involving both island and maritime claims within the region of the Asian Seas by several sovereign states, namely Japan, Brunei, the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
Entering into the fight are warships mainly from the United States, supported by warships from India, Australia, Canada, Britain, France, Germany; and the Philippines in a much smaller capacity.
Supporting the fight against China are an estimated 300 thousand troops mostly from America and supported by Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
Additional nuclear warhead ballistic missiles were introduced into the region in 2019 by America according to then Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.
The AUKUS is an Asian Seas initiative, a nuclear submarine project to give to Australia, American and British nuclear technology. It will also facilitate sharing of information in a number of artificial intelligence, underwater warfare systems, and quantum, cyber-, and long-range strike capabilities. Australia’s Scott Morrison said Australia will also enhance its long-range strike capabilities through the purchase of Tomahawk cruise missiles and extended range Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missiles.  Art/Cropping/Enhancement: Rosa Yamamoto FPMag

The most trusted leader in the world is a woman, a true Shero. But only 2% of such positions are filled by women.


ANgela Merkel, the most trusted leader in the world

The most trusted leader in the world is a Shero.
A recent paper showed a 47%
reduction in new COVID-19 transmissions (estimate between 15% and
75%) over a period of 20 days after
the institution of regional mask mandates in Germany.
Thank you, Angela Merkel, the first female Chancellor of Germany in 2005 now finishing her fourth and last term in 2021.
During these troubled times, it is women who are making a difference, despite women being the most vulnerable and oppressed.
