Increased Role of females in Today's Society

Women are taking a stand and reclaiming their historical virtues because it is our primal nature. This
intrinsic nature is instinctual survival. We all want to continue our human race and survive. This is a part of who we are. It may be automatic or unconscious, but the sooner we recognize it, the better off we will be. Women have a great capacity to connect with nature and to a Divine source. Those with a deep inner knowing are capable of surrendering to higher wisdom. We all have the human capacity to make conscious choices and to utilize self-knowledge.
By acknowledging the pain and uniting with others in a group or through one on one conversation, women can heal the pain. Another way women can heal is through identifying with a powerful feminine archetype. The story of the Goddess Inanna emphasizes empowerment. As a feminine aspect of cosmic and human powers, the Goddess Inanna is dual in character and manifests the full gamut of human potential. In one sense she is Mother Earth, her concern and caring for others is marked by her rescue and tender care of the hulluppu-tree. She manifests Gods gifts for mankind and stands strong and confident in an effort to do this. In another sense, she represents the capacity in every human being to triumph over difficult times and continually achieve fuller expressions of Divine glory.
When I mention the feminine, I am not referring only to women-I am referring to both men and women. Women and men both
contain feminine and masculine energy. These two energies exist simultaneously within each human being. However, very few of us utilize our inner feminine nurturing nature. Inanna represents a woman who contains a balance of masculine and feminine aspects. She is strong and empowered. She takes action. Moreover, Inanna's myth tells us she is willing to rescue the tree and has patience to nurture the tree. In our modern world, we need to move forward and acknowledge the Divine feminine. We must recognize this Divinity within ourselves. Very much like Mother Teresa is revered for her feminine qualities of nurturing and caring, women too should be valued for their innate skills of loving and leading their families.
Women will begin to lead the way in their family's health and in their family's set of values. If a woman is healthy in mind, body and spirit, she boasts a healthy family. If a woman is unhealthy, however, the family is subject to shadow aspects that easily trickle from generation to generation. If the family household is of mind, body and spirit, the children pick up on this and it sets the stage for their perceived values. A man who criticizes his wife in front of his children leads his family to believe this is normal and continues creating turmoil. On the other hand, a man who is raised by an empowered female will naturally generate a balanced family.The only way women will make a difference in the trajectory of our human race is to stand up for what they know is true in their hearts. Furthermore, they can reunite with their primal, innate instincts. Women can honor the magnificence of their feminine cycles and embrace the continuous change in their bodies. Women should not be ashamed of their menstrual cycle or try to stop it through birth control injections. This is their womanhood. Feminine virtues should be perceived as a gift; a blessing for the creation of human life. This insight will help us stay better connected with the whole of our human  nature.
In today's world, women are looking for a strong female archetype to identify with. Women are being called to get in touch with their feminine principles and take responsibility. Women are being called to unite and bring light to their inner feminine energy. As the modern woman awakens, she will find it helpful to identify with a legendary story that signifies women's confidence, strength and feminine virtue.
Women have a great capacity to take on major change but we must prepare and empower ourselves to do this. This will manifest as a healthy balance of masculine/feminine equality. Now more than ever it is vital that women bond and come together to implement a universal shift in consciousness. How do we do this? How do women overcome the pain of thousands of years of mistreatment and degradation. The only way is through awareness and a willingness to heal.

In Inanna's story, she is a young woman who braves the forceful flood waters of the Euphrates River and saves the "tree of life." Our own modern-day "tree of life" is hanging by a thread. Many people are beginning to recognize this based on the current uprisings in the Middle East and the recent natural catastrophes-namely Japan.
What if we had some way of preventing this from occurring? What would this look like? This could look like the beginning of Inanna's story when she brings the ragged cedar tree to her holy garden. As a recourse, this signifies a need to start connecting with humanities inner feminine nature.

Women are beginning to recognize their inner feminine qualities and there is a recent trend of women valuing the importance of self-care. Mothers who care for their families are coming of age to realize that it is okay to take some time for themselves. The influx of women taking yoga classes or yoga teacher training has significantly increased. True yoga allows one to go inward and meditate on the inner feminine energies. The next step for women's evolution is to honor their own inner truth.
Women will begin to lead the way in their family's health and in their family's set of values. If a woman is healthy in mind, body and spirit, she boasts a healthy family.
