Globalization from a Woman's Perspective
Sustainability is like the ripples that widen when we toss that pebble into our world. Our experiences and ideas ripple through all our decisions, and our perspective matters.
I enjoy men, and I'm surrounded by a husband and son, so I also have great respect for men's opinions and perspectives -- but I also am concerned that women's voices are not heard often enough in green and sustainability leadership.
I discovered a woman's voice today that I should have known about -- but had missed. You might enjoy her perspectives on globalization of business and how it affects what we ask for right here at home in the form of incentives and subsidies...and how that affects struggling local economies on the other size of the globe.
Mary Robinson, the first woman President of Ireland (1990-1997) and more former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997-2002), has spent most of her life as a human rights advocate.
