On March 24-25, 2012, women gathered in several venues. Some were together face to face in Seattle, Washington, others followed via Facebook, Conference Calls, and via a LiveStream. Their purpose was to discuss the values upon which policy and decisions for our lives, families, countries, and world must be made. That may seem like a Major Undertaking and yet, Mystic Shawwoman, Sharon Riegie Maynard, knowing that this is the core purpose of Female assignment, she didn't wait for a political candidate to ask.
Women do not need permission!
We recognized that there are many amazing individuals, projects, organizations which are focusing on various aspects of life. However, with all that we are doing, we are still working within a social environment created by Patriarichial agendas which are Domination, Contol, and Usury. Parasitic, by nature.
These women created a solid Declaration of Values to underpin and foundation cultures for now and future generations.
The Invitation to ROAR! was given by Cinda Stevens Lonsway
"It began as a whisper, of one woman leaning into the ear of another, “Do you feel it?” she asked.
"Then whispered to another, “Do you feel it?” and it began to spread, this whisper, from one woman to another, to another, whispering, “Do you feel it? Do you feel it?”
"The question was asked, once, then twice, then ten hundred whispers around the world; women wondering what it was they were feeling. The whispering pulsed as the need for the answer grew. “Do you feel it?”
"The rhythm became stronger, bolder, as it spread to their hearts; knowing not which was the whisper and which was the heartbeat, for the two became one. More and more women began to feel the pounding of a need, not yet understood, and the rumbling began to stir the earth under their feet. . . ."
