A Word from the President
This era is bringing to a close the history of injustice and indignity towards women. The dawning of women's true dignity and leadership ability is being realized. This new paradigm allows women to offer another aspect of leadership that was missing.
These times desperately call for women who feel a sense of responsibility toward their community to step forward and cooperate in building a world where our future generations can live in peace. This is an age where input from the viewpoint of women is an important addition to the successful efforts to achieving peace.
Now is the time for men and women to work together for a common purpose. The result of women working together with men in governance and leadership is a culture of heart.
In the words of WFWPI co-founder,
"In the twenty-first century, women should play a major role in world history by serving, together with men, as one of the wheels of the engine pulling forward the construction of a peaceful world. Going beyond a century of power and technology, women will be the central axis in building a century characterized by its loving, peaceful culture, and their role will be more important than ever before."
