Societies cannot thrive if 50% of their population are not able to attain their full educational, political, creative and earning potential. And this does not even take into account the very special attributes of that unused 50%—the feminine element that complements the best attributes of men.

As well as encouraging women forward with assurances of their ultimate victory, this book calls upon men to play their part in the endeavour for worldwide gender equality. Ultimately, this will be to the benefit of men as well.

“The world of humanity has two wings—one is women and the other men. Not until both wings are equally developed can the bird fly. Should one wing remain weak, flight is impossible. Not until the world of women becomes equal to the world of men in the acquisition of virtues and perfections, can success and prosperity be attained as they ought to be.”
