5WCW India 2022, “Assignment" 
   Inspiring Women Summit
 
The blue and white 5WCW button now has India 2022 in orange on to it. My conviction that there needed to be a UN 5th World Conference on Women to bring the women of the world together across generations, religions, and nations has grown into an inner certainty that 5WCW will happen in India in 2022.  I learned that there would never be another UN World Conference on Women after Beijing in 1995, when I went to the UN in 2002. 
 
 I was there because I had written The Millionth Circle: How to Change Ourselves and The World, which seeded the idea of the Millionth Circle Initiative at the Parliament of the World Religions in South Africa (1999).This led to an organizing meeting in California via Geneva, attended by several founder-exectuve directors of NGOs, which is why one of the intentions of this Initiative was to bring women’s circles to the UN NGOs. 5WCW grew from this, with the 20+ conveners of the Millionth Circle holding the vision for the past 15 years.
The Big picture: the fate of humanity and the Earth requires a change of course. I believe it is in the hands and hearts of empowered, equalitarian women who meet, trust, learn, and communicate with each other in circles (in person or virtually), and want for all children, what they want for their own child. Ending violence against women and children, access for all to education, medical care, nutritious food, clean water and air—every child a wanted child, reproductive choice. To live in a world in which you can grow into who you were meant to be, taps into the invisible web of spirit and synchronicity, the Tao, Self, transpersonal Love and Beauty.
Advocacy for 5WCW is my “assignment,” Definition: There is an inner response, a "Yes! to three questions: Is it meaningful? (personally for reasons others may not know), Will it be fun? (because growing into who we were meant to be and being with others who share values, and even angst is Fun), and Is it motivated by love? (for whatever or whoever it is that we save, help, or further, and has to do with why we are here.)
